Seasonal allergies: Getting rid of seasonal allergies, a chronic condition, cannot be done quickly. Symptoms can be controlled with medications but long term control and possible cure can only be achieved with allergen immunotherapy. You need to see an allergist for that.

Symptoms or allergy?: Quickest way to treat allergy symptoms is with antihistamine and "sinus" medications. To get rid of having the allergy means getting away from the cause or having treatments given to modify the response your body has to that cause.

Challenging task: The best approach to treating allergies is avoidance, medications and allergy injections. Avoidance measures may be impractical for seasonal pollens. Medications that are started before the allergy season is better than waiting for symptoms to occur. The best long term treatment is allergy shots from board certified allergist. This can provide long lasting relief even after injections are done.
