Symptomatic relief: Is best after discussion with your PCP or doctor. Make sure this is documented in your chart as ALLERGY TO BACTRIM/SULFAS. The symptomatic relief is perhaps the best, like ice chips, no hot, spicy, foods. Keep it bland, hydrating, easy to digest as your entire throat may also be affected down to your gut. Tepid, soothing, nonstinging baths like Aveeno (oatmeal) may be helpful. No chemical shampoos or soaps. ...Read more

No cure yet, but...: Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) is currently the only treatment that is disease modifiying, meaning it can change how the body responds to exposure to allergens.

OTC Allergy: Not fair. Truly, it is trial-and-error. What works best for you might not work best for someone else. Loratadine is the weakest binding non-sedating antihistamine; Cetirizine is the strongest binding non-sedating antihistamine.
