In brief: Pediatric allergist

An allergist is a specialist trained in the diagnosis and treatment of asthma and allergic diseases.
Almost 80% of children who have asthma also have allergies. An allergist is either trained primarily as a pediatrician or in internal medicine. A pediatrician who has been trained in allergy may be just the right fit.
