Can allergy be cured?

Controlled. Allergy can be controlled with avoidance of known sources of allergy (pets, pollen, etc), medication taken consistently, and perhaps allergy shots. However we are not able to "cure allergy" but these measures help restore a good quality of life.
No cure. Allergies can usually be controlled with medications, avoidance measures and sometimes the addition of allergy shots or other forms of immunotherapy. There is not yet a cure.

Medicine is not a cure for allergies. Read more...
