What would you like to do?
When I had allergy testing done, I was told there was a possible way of overcoming allergies. I am allergic to wheat and rapeseed oil. The Doctor told me to completely cut out these foods for 9 months (i.e. to not even have a crumb of wheat). After 9 months try a small piece of the food (e.g. one slice of bread) and see if you have a reaction. If there is no reaction, the following week try a little bit more (two slices of bread) etc and keep going that way. If however you get a reaction, then chances are you will not be able to get rid of the allergy. I think you would probably be able to overcome an allergy if it "developed" rather than if you inherited it. I guess the same method would apply to other allergies - cut it out completely for 9 months, then try to slowly reintroduce it.
Was this answer useful?
Thanks for the feedback!
Allergies are a heightened, but natural response of the body to foreign substances, and there are not effective methods to reduce the immune reponse to a selective antig…en (substance).
You can eat Santana Apples, it sounds strange, but these apples are suitable for people with apple allergy.
There is none. I developed the allergy at age 24 post body trauma event. I didnt realizr I had the allergy until I was26 and had vomited etc about 11times. COuldn't fi…gure it out as I had eaten LOTS of shellfish in my life. Then at age 52 I thought when I develpoped an allergy to handling 'I thought maybe my shellfish allergy is gone and if it is ,,,,anyway I got to risk vomiting to see and guess what I was no longer allergic. I have no idea when 'it went' but i do believe it going away is also unusual???
Using a saline nasal spray several times a day will help keep the allergens cleared from your sinuses. You can buy them commercially at any store, or make your own. To make yo…ur own, just mix one level teaspoon of table salt and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in one pint of warm water. Pour into a clean squirt or spray bottle and flush sinuses as often as needed. You can also gargle with warm salt water (mix 1/2 teaspoon salt into one half glass of warm water). The salt has natural antibacterial properties, and will also help keep the film of mucous from forming in your throat, which can make it feel sore and irritated.
That would depend on what kind of animal it is, and the weight of the animal. It is much safer to ask a veterinarian than to try to treat a pet's allergies yourself with OTC m…edicines. Many medicines that are meant for humans can harm or even kill animals. I once had a cat with severe allergies, and was told by a veterinarian to try Benadryl, but the dosage for a cat is much less than that for a human, and even though I used the dosage the vet told me to use, what it did for my cat was cause her to become severely congested, making her problem worse, not better. Using OTC antihistamines on an animal without knowing the correct dosage could result in death or coma, or kidney or liver damage.
Oh yes food allergy can very well be caused with food we eat, like fish dont soot all people. yes it can
As far as natural remedies, there are things you can use to higher your immune system such as Zinc and loading up with the right amount of vitamins on a daily basis. Drink a l…ot of water, keep your system flushed clean. Another good thing, though, especially if you have a pet inside the house, is to get an air purifier and a mattress encasement. You can easily find them here -- http://www.douglasallergyrelief.com -- or just a local health store, I'm sure. Getting those helps the air stay clear of all the allergens, fur or pollen or whatnot, which can make the vitamins, etc. way more effective.
No. I never have and have lots of allergies. Actually, I find it is the opposite.
Antihistamines are used to relieve or prevent allergy symptoms. Some common antihistamines include Benadryl, Chlortripalon, Atarax, Claritin,Seldane, and Hismanal.
Yes over the counter allergy medications are effective for most people. The trick to getting them to be effective is to try the different types available till you find the one… that works for you. You can also ask the pharmacist for further information at you local pharmacy.
Most over the counter allergy relief products are as effective as prescriptions because some have changed from prescription to over the counter in the past few years.
I use Paw Paw ointment from the supermarket about $5 and have on cats and dogs including myself. Heals very quickly.
Some natural cures for outbreaks of hives in include drinking herbal tea, taking an oatmeal bath which will help reduce the itchiness or rub aloe vera on the hives .
There are drugs known as Antihistamines that help provide allergy relief. The first generation drugs can cause drowsiness so they should only be used at night time. They inc…lude drugs such as Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) and Cetirizine (Zyrtec). The non-drowsy options are the second generation drugs and they include Loratidine (Claritin) and Fexofenadine (Allegra). It is a good idea to ask your pharmacist to make sure the drug you eventually decide to take does not interact with your prescription medications.
There are some readily available natural methods for seasonal allergy relief. The first is regularly rinsing out the nose with a saline wash. A neti-pot or bulb syringe can …be used. Another way to fight allergies is to regularly eat foods high in Omega-3 fats such as salmon.
Many people find relief from the congestion of colds and allergies with the regular use of a neti-pot to flush the sinuses. A scratchy throat can be eased with a hot honey lem…on tea; lemon juice and honey mixed together can act as a cough suppressant.
