Avoidance: Avoiding the foods to which you are allergic is still the best treatment. Studies are underway with oral desensitization, but this technique is not ready yet for generalized use. Sometimes a food challenge in a doctor's office can confirm if you are truly allergic to these foods. Allergy tests for foods often produce false positive reactions.
