In brief: Primary Prevention

The first rule in allergy is to avoid what you are allergic to.
If you don't know exactly what you are allergic to, you should consider an evaluation with an allergy/immunology specialist.

In brief: Allergy the unknown

If you could figure that out i will nominate you for the nobel prize in medicine.
We know that a genetic predisposition is often present and prior exposure is necessary for "sensitization" to occur and that subsequent allergic reactions can then occur. However when, to what allergens, and what type and extent of reaction occurs is variable, so prevention is elusive.
