My best thought is to suggest that you stay with the allergist until you find the things that are really the worst allergens for you. I hope he has medicated you for the yeast infection. We aren't doctors, of course, so we can't suggest that you do this or that. We can tell you only what has worked for us.
I can suggest that you stop all foods with sugar in them until the infection is clear. Some infections feed on sugar. Please be careful about
your vitamins while you have an infection. Iron in them will hide in your body until an infection is clear. Make sure you're taking one that doesn't have iron in it if it turns out you have a bacterial infection. Yeast is a fungal infection, so you might want to go online to see if there's any sound advice for healing a yeast infection that you can do in addition to taking prescribed medication.
An inherited allergy gene could be at the root of much of your problem, frankly. Those of us who do have an inherited allergy gene learn after a while to recognize things that are bothering us and make arrangements to take something else that our doctors will prescribe.
In my opinion, you are doing all the best things to get to the bottom of the problem and see that it is corrected.
It may take a few weeks to get everything in line, especially if your allergist wants to do testing for foods and other allergens.
Please let him help you through this difficult time.
Take care, and I feel sure you're going to be fine. You're in control now and that's what counts for your well-being. I understand very clearly your intent to get things straightened out but good!
With best wishes,
