Find an allergist: Go to the website www.Aaaai.Org and click on the tab at the top that says "find an allergist." enter your zip code to find the one nearest you that is a member of this organization, the american academy of allergy, asthma and immunology.

What is the difference between an allergist and an immunologist?

Not much: These physicians are typically interchangeable as allergy is an over-vigorous immune response. Thus, an immunologist typically manages allergies.
A 74-year-old female asked:
Can an allergist/immunologist ever help with chronic inflammatory polyneuropathy? Have seen neuro, but have been told I have IgG deficiency as well.

Together: There is an overalp, and a neuroimmunologist should be able to treat it and if in doubt, an allergist can prescribe ivig if needed. Your neurologist should be able to tell you if they can treat the igg deficiency or not.
