Medications for Allergies

The best treatment for allergy is still avoidance of exposure to allergens. However, if avoidance is impossible, the allergy suffer can take common allergy medicines like decongestants, antihistamines and nasal sprays.

Another type of treatment for allergies is known as immunotherapy. With this kind of treatment, the allergy sufferer can take allergy shots in order to desensitize his system to the allergy. It usually takes a person 6 months before a significant result occurs. To be totally free of the symptoms of allergy, it usually takes 3 to 4 years.
