Sure: You're being rather coy. The first thing to do is to try and identify what you're allergic to and then ask yourself how the allergy manifests itself in you and how much it interferes with your life. Knowing those answers you can decide whether you want to see an allergist or not and discuss where you want to proceed or not.

See an allergist: An allergist is specifically trained to have expertise in the diagnosis and management of allergies. While there is not a "cure" for allergies, a well trained, board certified allergist can work with you to develop an individualized plan to help you. Find an allergist---find relief!
