What are allergies?

An allergy happens when the body’s immune system sees a substance as harmful and overreacts to it. Allergens – the substances that trigger allergic reactions – exist in a variety of sources, such as dust, grass or bee stings. The substances are harmless to most people, but the symptoms can range from minor to more serious, depending on your allergy.

What’s an allergist/immunologist?

An allergist/immunologist, or allergist, is a doctor trained to diagnose, treat and manage problems related to the immune system, such as allergies, asthma and autoimmune diseases. Depend on care from allergists with:

  • Four years of medical school 
  • Three years of internal medicine or pediatric care residency training
  • At least two more years of study (fellowship) in an allergy and immunology program
  • Certification from the American Board of Allergy and Immunology
