In brief: Anything that works
The specific air born trigger to your child's allergy is less important than the effect the medications.
Anti-histamines, nasal sprays & mast cell regulators may be a benefit. Most opt for a 24hr preparation for convenience.I like the non sedating antihistamines like fexophenadine(allegra) , steroid nasal spray (flonase). If your child cooperates & tolerates the med it should help.
