Types of Allergy Treatments

There are many Over-the-counter and prescription medications that can control allergy and alleviate painful and irritating symptoms. Let’s take a look at some treatments for allergy. Allergic Treatment #1: Antihistamines This is commonly the first line of defence against an allergic attack. The main aim of Antihistamine is to deactivate or at least reduce the release of histamines. Histamine is released in the body in the presence of some allergen outside the body. These allergens are: Pollen, Fumes, Vapour, Perfumes, Dust, Molds, Dust Mites, Food, or Medication. Histamine can cause the following symptoms: itchy skin rashes (hives), running nose and eyes, swelly and stuffy nose, & itchy eyes. Antihistamines are great form of allergic treatment for relieving seasonal, food and indoor allergies. But they cannot alleviate all types of allergies. For example, it cannot cure Nasal Congestion. Allergic Treatment #2: Allergy Shots This can make you allergy free! Allergy shots does not actually cure allergy or alleviates its symptoms, what it does something interesting: Allergy shots help your body GET USED TO allergens! Allergy shots are also called Immunotherapy. And this is the most suitable allergy treatment if others do not work or if you experience regular allergic symptoms. Allergic Treatment #3: Auto-Injector This is good for extreme allergic attacks, which can even threaten your life. It injects a life-saving dose of Epinephrine. Epinephrine (aka adrenaline) is a hormone your body naturally produces. It can help improve breathing, raise blood pressure that’s dropping, and reduce swelling. It is always safe and wise to keep an auto-injector or two with you wherever you go. Allergic Treatment #4: Decongestants Nasal Congestion, because of an allergy or otherwise, can be cured by a Decongestant. When allergies affect your nose, it swells up blood vessels and tissues. Allergies make the lining of your nose swell. Decongestants shrink swollen blood vessels and tissues. That relieves the congestion. But decongestants can’t help with sneezing or itching. Caution: Don’t use nasal spray Decongestant longer than three days. Using it continuously for several days has a side-effect: It will make the nose congested! Allergic Treatment #5: Anticholinergic Nasal Allergy Sprays This is good for running nose. Anticholinergic nasal sprays decrease secretions from the glands lining the nasal passage. Caution: Using it beyond the prescribed duration may cause dry nose, nose bleeding and irritation. Allergic Treatment #6: Steroid Nasal Sprays These are powerful allergy medicines, esp. for the nose. This spray decreases inflammation in the nose, thereby, relieving nasal symptoms. Caution: Excessive use of this spray may cause nose bleeding and sore throat.
