The treatment is avoidance of trigger and use of injectable epinephrine.

Allergy to HIV meds: Drug allergies can occur to virtually any medication. The symptoms vary greatly. Rashes are a common sign of drug allergy, but so are joint pains and many other symptoms. Most reactions are side effects and not allergies. Here is wiki's index of which HIV medications cause which types of adverse symptoms and reactions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/management_of_hiv/aids#adverse_effects.

It depends: Strictly for allergy you have the antihistamines that are divided into sedating and non-sedating. The sedating are a heterogeneous group, the commonest side effect is sedation. They can also cause dry mouth and constipation. The non-sedating have generally few side effects. The decongestants (pseudoephedrine, phenylephrine) in combinations and alone cause palpitations, restlessness and increase bp.

Indoor allergens : Indoor allergens are usually dust mites, pollens, molds, cockroache, and/or animal danders. Environmental control, minimizing exposure, may be of some help as are topical/oral medication. If those are not adequate allergen immunotherapy is usually indicated. In rare extreme situations you might need ro move, but the "grass isn't always greener". Need to see board certiified allergist.
