Thanks for your question. In general, if you are working with a specialist in a field, it is good to follow the recommendations of that physician. It is difficult for another doctor
to walk into the situation without knowing the entire story and the patient's past medical history and try to change the plan, as he or she is unlikely to understand the nuances that come into play with each patient and the differences that they have. In your situation, your doctor has made some recommendations for you about how to reach the best situation for your health. If you have concerns about these recommendations, it will take a more formal evaluation to change the plan that has already been developed. This may be entirely appropriate, and can be completed via a second opinion
. There are likely other qualified allergists in your community with whom you could discuss this question in the appropriate format to get you the answer that you need. Obviously, you have significant allergies that will require further treatment. If you are able to establish a line of communication with a doctor whom you trust, this will help you to feel better. Please speak with your doctor.
