Most allergies can be treated for Adults and Children.
Some of the best ways to treat allergies are:
If one is allergic to say shellfish, then abstinence from that food will prevent symptoms from occurring. If the allergens are found in the environment like dust mites, pet danders or pollens, then measures to avoid exposure will decrease symptoms
If avoidance cannot eliminate the symptoms or is not possible, then medications can help minimise symptoms. Common medications include antihistamines, nasal sprays, asthma medications, steroid creams and oral steroids.
- Medications, however, control the symptoms but do not cure the allergy.
Immunotherapy, a targeted treatment for boosting the immunity against specific allergens, can reduce or eliminate the allergic symptoms.
This works like a vaccine and over a period of time, the individual develops a protection against the allergens.
This is effective against environmental allergens such as dust mites, pet danders and pollens. It is effective in allergies of the nose, eyes, allergic asthma and some eczema.
