Can Allergies Be Healed Completely?

Jun 19, 2018

Allergies

Pollen, dust, pet dander, cleaning products, food, drinks and more. Allergies can affect nearly every aspect of life, and if severe enough, change it completely. How prevalent are allergies? More than 50 million people in the United States have an allergy of some kind.

If you’re an allergy sufferer, you likely know about some treatments, but have you ever wondered …

Can allergies ever be completely cured?

The general answer is “no,” but … some kids can outgrow allergies, specifically those to food. The key is to find out what you’re allergic to. Allergy tests today are more convenient and accurate than ever. Combined with your detailed medical history, allergy testing (via skin or blood tests) can identify the specific things that cause your allergic reactions.

Feel and live better with healing allergy treatments

It’s a fact. Sometimes you can’t avoid allergens. The good news is, there are two effective ways to manage your allergies:

  • Medications – Decongestants and antihistamines can help relieve a stuffy, runny nose and sneezing and itching. Corticosteroids are effective in treating inflammation in your nose. Other medications work by blocking the release of the chemicals that cause allergic reactions.
  • Immunotherapy – This preventive treatment is used to quell allergic reactions to things like grass pollens, house dust mites and bee venom. The treatment involves you receiving gradually increasing doses of the allergen to which you are allergic. The gentle increases of the allergen spark your immune system to become less sensitive to it, likely by causing the production of a "blocking" antibody, which reduces your symptoms when you come in contact with the allergen. Immunotherapy can also reduce the inflammation of rhinitis and asthma.
