llergy shots, is another alternative. If you have been diagnosed with allergies, you should see an allergist/immunologist for care. Allergist/immunologists are physicians specially trained to manage and treat allergies and asthma. Unlike a cold, allergic disease is not a condition that someone can just "get over." However, the help of a trained allergist/immunologist can reduce how often patients need to stay home from work or school due to symptoms.

When to see an allergist/immunologist

According to the AAAAI's referral guidelines, patients should see an allergist/immunologist if they:
-- Need to confirm the diagnosis of allergies or asthma

-- Need education and guidance in techniques for self-management of

allergies or asthma

-- Are considering immunotherapy (allergy shots)

-- Have nasal polyps

-- Have co-existing conditions such as asthma or recurrent sinusitis

-- Have found medications to be ineffective

-- Have symptoms interfering with quality of life and/or ability to

function

The AAAAI represents allergists, asthma specialists, clinical immunologists, allied health professionals and others with a special interest in the research and treatment of allergic disease. Allergy/immunology specialists are pediatric or internal medicine physicians who have elected an additional two years of training to become specialized in the treatment of asthma, allergy and immunologic disease. Established in 1943, the AAAAI has more than 6,500 members in the United States, Canada and 60 other countries. The AAAAI serves as an advocate to the public by providing educational information through its Web site at http://www.aaaai.org.
