When should you see an allergist?

People get one type of allergic reaction or another and often wonder when they should see an allergist. We tell our patients that it depends on how serious the reaction is. The severity of allergic reactions will tell us whether we need to investigate the cause of it now or later. If you have an acute reaction (anaphylaxis), it will be important to find out what caused it; that means that you may have to see an allergist. If the reaction was more like hives, then there is no need for rush work-up as the condition may resolve over a period of time. That is how you decide whether you want to see an allergist. Personal finance and whether your insurance will cover the expense also plays a role in that decision.
