If you suffer from chronic allergies, you typically have three choices:
- Trigger avoidance
- Daily and on-the-spot medications, such as antihistamines
Trigger avoidance works well if you’re allergic to very few things, and you don’t have to come into contact with them very often. But, if you’re among the millions of people who have allergies against very common substances, such as pollen, mold, dust, or pet dander, avoidance isn’t typically a practical solution.
Daily medications are effective, but many people don’t like the side effects of these drugs, namely drowsiness.
One of the best solutions for chronic allergies is immunotherapy, which tackles the problem in an effective and long-lasting way by controlling, and even eliminating, your allergy.
