The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has launched our new Ask the Allergist knowledge base.
For more than 20 years, our board-certified allergists have answered your asthma and allergy questions through our Ask the Allergist service. Now we have compiled the most common questions people have submitted, along with their responses, into a searchable knowledge base.
Here’s a sample of the questions and answers you’ll find in the knowledge base:
- What do I do if I have asthma but don’t have health insurance?
- What's causing these mysterious hives?
- How do I know if my food allergy tests were false positives?
Here are a few ways you can use the Ask the Allergist knowledge base:
- Search the knowledge base by clicking the “Search” button at the top of the page. Enter keywords, choose specific conditions, date ranges, and more. Or you can browse all of the questions.
- Comment on existing questions. To comment and discuss a question, join our AAFA online community (or log in if you’re already a member).
- Submit questions of your own. While in the Ask the Allergist knowledge base, click “You can submit your own question to Ask the Allergist.” Or click the button below.
We hope you find AAFA’s Ask the Allergist knowledge base to be helpful. We’ll be adding to the knowledge base, so check back often. But remember, we can only provide general advice through this service, and we can’t answer questions about specific consumer products. It can help you as you manage your asthma and allergies, but it can’t replace the valuable relationship you have with your doctor. Always talk with your doctor before changing your asthma or allergy management plan.
