Can allergies be cured?

Many with allergies tend to suffer in silence. If you do, you should understand that you don't need to grin and bear it. While there is no cure for allergies, with proper management this condition can be effectively controlled.

Making changes in your environment can greatly limit your exposure to certain allergens and reduce your symptoms. Medications that are safe and effective can be prescribed. Allergen immunotherapy is also an option for reducing symptoms and medication reliance on a long-term basis.
