Hi, In a week I have my first appointment with an allergist. I would appreciate suggestions from those of you who deal with allergies or allergic asthma ( or anyone else who has a good idea! ) on what things I should ask.
I have been seeing a pulmonary specialist since I was diagnosed with asthma over five years ago Just diagnosed with allergic asthma about two months ago. I am on several maintenance asthma meds. I started on Xolair just over one month ago.
My blood work showed I am allergic to two kinds of dust mites. I know you can never be completely rid of dust mites no matter how well you clean and vacuum. We have put the special zippered covers on the mattress and pillows. We had the carpet removed and hardwood flooring put in the bedroom. I plan to ask if the two kinds of mites that I am allergic to are mainly in houses or are they also in the horse barn.
What would be some good questions to ask the allergist?
