Allergies: These treatments only manage the symptoms, they don't cure allergies. Even allergy shots only "immunomodulate" your immune system, helping you respond less brisky to the things you are allergic to. Another couple of treatments you might consider is nasal saline irrigation and nasal steroids if you haven't been on them in the past.
