Avoid and treat: You can often lessen symptoms with avoidance and medications. To certain allergens you can greatly lessen sensitivity with specific allergen immunotherapy. You can lessen all ige mediated reactions with Omalizumab (xolair). As allergists we usually recommend various combinations of these depending on severity and duration of symptoms as well as comorbidities (other medical problems).

Avoidance: Like any pet allergy, if one is having significant allergy symptoms then consideration should be given to getting away from the pet. For horse allergy, a patient should be evaluated for other allergens as well include molds, pollens and rodent allergy to make sure all base are covered. In general, antihisltamines and inhaled steroids for nasal and chest problems. Not alot of data on immunotherapy.

Wet season allergies: Often times these are due to molds or vegetation more prevalent during a wet season (depending on where you live). Immunotherapy is very helpful for mold allergies and antihistamines and intranasal steroids are useful for symptomatic contral.

Medications: Avoidance is always the best way to decrease allergy symptoms. When that is not feasible or practical, antihistamines and topical nasal steroid sprays are effective at treating the symptoms. When the medications are stopped, the symptoms can return if allergen exposure occurs again.

Encase: If you suffer from dust mite allergy, you can get a dust mite proof cover for your mattress and pillows. A hepa ait filter for the bedroom also helps. Consult an allergist for different options on getting rid of your allergies.
