In brief: Yes, 3

There are 3 proven strategies for treating allergies.
1) avoidance works, although only a few allergens are easy to avoid. 2) medications. Nasal steroids are the most effective medications for most allergy symptoms. 3) allergy immunotherapy (allergy shots) - the only disease modifying therapy. Many patients can develop tolerance to their allergens after receiving allergy shots.
