Allergy treatment


In the first instance, the aim is to control symptoms, relieve the patient and avoid complications.

There are all kinds of medications, whether taken orally, inhaled or applied directly to the skin, which are generally highly effective.

The next step is to avoid contact with the allergen whenever possible, once the allergen has been precisely identified. This is particularly important in the case of food allergies, drug allergies and contact eczema, as well as cat and dog allergies.

When allergic reactions are anaphylactic, an emergency kit is essential.

Finally, in order to cure the allergy, avoid aggravations and the development of new allergies, desensitization should be considered.

Desensitization is mainly performed against tree pollens, grass pollens, dust mites, cat hair, dog hair, wasps and bees.
