My 2 year old boy has asthma and eczema. He has rashes all over his body which irritate him. Can an allergist help with this condition? Is it apt to see one?

In brief: Absolutely!
A pediatric asthma & allergy specialist can be very helpful! asthma & eczema are closely related conditions, and can be miserably severe in younger children.
The good news is that there are many newer, very effective treatments, and a good specialist can work with you and your child to find the best solutions now and has he continues to grow. Good luck!

An allergist or dermatologist should be able to discover possible causes for the condition & then offer treatments to improve your son's condition.

It's best to start with your pediatrician or family doctor, there usually is something to do in the meantime to give your little one some relief.
With recurrent eczema and difficult to control asthma, then sometimes a specialist referral is warranted. A pediatric pulmonologist is also trained in treating asthma. Good luck!
