In brief: Depends

Number one is removal of the precipitating allergen (cause of the hypersensitivity).
Then, depending upon the severity, short courses of anti-inflammatory meds which may include steroids may be helpful. Supportive care may include other factors depending upon the cause and the degree of impairment.
