How do I get allergy relief?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Jack Mutnick
16 years experience in Allergy and Immunology
Allergies: First and foremost, get in to see an allergist to find out what you are allergic to. Over the counter allergy medications are never very effective although it is a multi-billion dollar industry that the american public believes helps based on the lies of commercials. See your allergist, find out what you are allergic to, and come up with a good plan of action to avoid and treat.
