Treatment Options

There are numerous steps you can take to help control or treat your allergies and your asthma.

Avoidance

  • Avoiding what you are allergic to can dramatically reduce your symptoms

Medications

  • If completely avoiding your allergen is not possible, taking antihistamines, Cetrizine / Zyrtec®, Fexofenidine / Allergra®, Loratadine / Claritin®, may effectively reduce your symptoms.
