Before your appointment with a board-certified allergy/immunology physician, you may consider keeping a diary of the symptoms you attribute to “allergy.”
A medical examination will include a physical examination of your chest, heart, neck, skin, eyes, nose, ears, and throat.
Tests may be performed, based on your doctor’s recommendations after the medical history and physical examination, to determine which allergens are causing your symptoms. These tests may include skin tests and/or blood tests.
