What are the Treatment Options for Allergies and Irritant-Induced Reactions?

Treatment for allergies may include:

  • Allergy medications such as antihistamines, nasal corticosteroids, decongestants, and oral corticosteroids to alleviate symptoms.
  • Allergen immunotherapy (allergy shots or sublingual tablets) to desensitize the immune system to specific allergens and reduce allergic symptoms over time.

Treatment for irritant-induced reactions may include:

  • Symptomatic relief with over-the-counter medications such as pain relievers, antihistamines, or topical corticosteroids.
  • Avoidance of irritants and protective measures to minimize exposure.
  • Management of underlying conditions (e.g., asthma, dermatitis) that may be exacerbated by irritant exposure.
