In brief: No
Pediatric allergists specialize in the treatment of allergy issues, as well as asthma, eczema, and urticaria.
Allergists are able to perform a multitude of tests to determine what the source is of issues your child may be having.

In brief: Scope of practice
Most do, but some practice a fair amount of general pediatrics along with their specialty.
To find out, call the office and ask the staff. They will be happy to tell you which way their doctor practices and what types of patients s/he sees. All pediatric allergists have to be board-certified pediatricians before they become allergists.
