Effective allergy treatments are available
Talk to one of our Doctors about how to manage your allergy symptoms. We will take into account the triggers, your condition and the age of the patient. Some of the more common treatments will help curb and lessen the symptoms, although there is no specific ‘cure’ for most allergens.
We regularly recommend trying to control seasonal allergies with the following:
- antihistamine tablets or liquids
- decongestant tablets
- nasal sprays – saline or INCS
- other methods like immunotherapy
