Introducción al tratamiento de las alergias

El tratamiento varía con la severidad y el tipo de síntoma alérgico. La primera acción a tomar es evitar el alergeno si es posible. Medicamentos tales como los antihistamínicos por lo general se prescriben para aliviar los síntomas de la alergia. La inmunoterapia, o "vacunas de alergia", se recomienda en ocasiones si no se puede evitar el alergeno. Ésta incluye inyecciones regulares del alergeno, administradas en dosis crecientes que pueden "desensibilizar" el organismo al alergeno.
