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:

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.


Note: Be sure to submit your question using our secure Ask the Allergist form and not the “Post” button on the page. The “Post” button helps you post topics on our online community where you can talk with other people who also manage asthma and allergies. But it doesn’t send the questions to our allergists. If you want to submit your own question, follow the directions above.

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.

AAFA’s Ask the Allergist service isn’t the only benefit of joining our online community. Connect with other people also managing asthma and allergies, get information to help you manage your conditions, and get alerts about news, events, research, and advocacy efforts.
