How can allergists help with your eosinophilic asthma?

ANSWER

These doctors diagnose and treat asthma, allergies, and related diseases. Many people with eosinophilic asthma don�t have allergies. So you�re less likely to deal with an allergist than with a pulmonologist. But allergists can help you identify specific triggers that may set off your asthma flares.
