Allergy/immunology doctors, more commonly referred to as allergists, specialize in the management and treatment of asthma, allergies and eczema, as well as urticaria (hives), angioedema (swelling) and immunodeficiencies. Allergists initially complete a training in either general pediatrics or internal medicine, and then continue their training to focus on the care of both children and adults with allergic and immunologic conditions.
