This area of specialty includes prevention, diagnosis and treatment of allergies: food allergy, skin allergy, drug allergy, asthma, sports allergy and pathologies such as rhinitis, bronchial asthma and primary immunodeficiency, amongst others.


The immunoallergologist usually prescribes complimentary diagnosis exams which include blood tests (allergen-specific immunoglobulin E, RAST), prick or puncture skin tests, pulmonary function tests and Allergy Shots (Immunotherapy), under medical supervision.


Children frequently suffer from different kinds of allergies: about 22% of children in Europe have some kind of allergy and lately there’s been an increase in severe food allergies.


Severe allergic reactions includeanaphylaxis, and it is becoming more frequent in children, mostly due to food allergies. The seriousness of these situations, which are potentially fatal, requires close attention not only from allergologists but also from all health professionals.


Parents, family and all persons involved in child caring, at home, school, health services, have an important role in helping identify and prevent anaphylactic reactions.
