Allergies can cause great misery. Thankfully, there are ways to help manage symptoms and continue doing the things you enjoy. The goal is to find the treatment that best suits your allergies, and your lifestyle. Here are three of the most common ways to find relief from allergy symptoms.

Allergy shots

  • Allergy shots can help reduce sensitivity to the triggers that set off your allergies. This therapy involves injecting small and increasing amounts of allergens over regular intervals. Meaning weekly injections with increasing doses for three to six months and then monthly injections for three to five years.

Decongestants

  • Decongestants help relieve the stuffy, blocked-nose symptoms of nasal congestion. Short-term use of decongestants usually provides good symptom relief and can make you feel better quickly. But some decongestants can increase your heart rate and blood pressure and keep you awake at night.MedicationsMedications such as Antihistamines are the mainstay for treating the sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes that come with allergies. Antihistamines also relieve hives and other symptoms of some food allergies. Their effects are also longer lasting, so usually you need to take them only once a day instead of every four to six hours.
