The allergist is a specialist in allergies and diseases of the immune system. Our system naturally defends itself against infections caused by viruses and other bacteria. The same goes for allergies, which are a defensive response, manifested in the form of hypersensitivity to an element external to the body. Getting an evaluation by an allergist in Montreal can help you improve your immune system.
Allergic rhinitis, seasonal, skin affections such as eczema or dermatitis, as well as metabolic reactions such as diarrhea, vomiting or intestinal discomfort, are all different demonstrations of one or more possible allergies or intolerances. By knowing the different elements of our environment or diet that can cause these kind of reactions, an allergist will be able to detect the potentially problematic sources of the symptoms, and thus determine the tests to be carried out.
Depending on the type of reaction, different tests may be required, such as skin tests (prick test), which consists of tiny pricks on the arm accompanied by a drop of each allergenic substance recommended during the assessment, or blood tests. Following this, the allergist will select the most appropriate treatment, advise the patient on the various methods of prevention of allergies, or may suggest and elaborate on a process of desensitization.
If your doctor detects abnormalities related to your immune system, or if you have allergies/hypersensitivity, he may refer you to an allergist to get more specific expertise and allow you to manage your condition adequately.
