Allergy Treatment

Posted Sep 02 2010 9:07pm
There is no cure for  allergies, but there are several types of medications available - both 
 over- the-counter and prescription - to help ease annoying symptoms like congestion and runny nose. These allergy drugs includeantihistamines, decongestants, combination medicines, corticosteroids, and others.

Allergy shots, which gradually increase your ability to tolerate allergens, are also available.


Antihistamines have been used for years to treat allergy symptoms. They can be taken as pills, liquid, nasal spray, or eye drops. Over-the-counter (OTC) antihistamine eye drops can relieve red itchy eyes, while nasal sprays can be used to treat the symptoms of seasonal or year-round allergies.
