It depends!: It depends on whether you mean environmental/respiratory allergies, food allergies, or skin contact allergies. It may be helpful to get allergy testing done, as one of the mainstays of allergy treatment is to avoid what you're allergic to.

Hard to answer: I'm not sure shat you mean by unspecified allergy. A consult with an allergist can help you determine if your symptoms are due to an allergy or something else.

Specializes in Family Medicine
Avoidance/Medication: When targeting allergies, it is important to know what allergens are causing your symptoms. One of the first steps is to get tested. Treatment is based on two principles: 1. Avoidance - if you are allergic to molds, dust mites, etc then thorough cleaning, pillow/mattress covers, vacuuming regularly, changing air filters, etc 2. Medication - nasal saline, antihistamines or prescribed nasal steroids.
