Allergy Treatments

Piri Allergy understands that it isn't always practical to try to avoid allergens. Besides, who wants to be trapped inside when the weather is lovely, or have to avoid things you enjoy because you have an allergy? Thankfully, a number of allergy treatments can ease distressing symptoms, and some even have a preventative effect. We hope this guide gives you a clearer understanding of how to treat allergies and the treatment options available to sufferers.

Antihistamines

Antihistamines help control the symptoms caused by the release of the inflammatory chemical called histamine that is released when you come into contact with your allergy trigger. They work by blocking the effect of histamine.

They are a common type of allergy treatment, have been used for years and are highly effective in treating early-phase symptoms like sneezing, runny nose and itchy, watery eyes caused by hay fever, mould spores, house dust mites and pet dander. Some can also relieve itchiness caused by urticaria (hives) and chickenpox.

Allergy & Hay fever eye drops

treatments-hay fever eye drops

Eye drops help to treat the itchy watery eyes associated with hay fever. Hay fever eye drops contain antihistamine or mast cell stabilisers, which prevent the release of histamine thus relieving the symptoms.

Anti-inflammatory nasal sprays

The human body manufactures a natural anti-inflammatory substance called cortisol. Corticosteroids used in some nasal sprays are based on this natural substance. These anti-inflammatory nasal sprays are highly effective in treating hay fever and other airborne allergy symptoms caused by pollen, mould spores, house dust mites and pet dander as they are sprayed directly in the nose, where allergic reactions to airborne allergens start.

They also work to relieve eye symptoms and go further than antihistamines to relieve the groggy congested feeling that you can get as a late phase symptom. They can also help prevent symptoms developing with regular use.

Antihistamine and decongestant combination

A tablet containing an antihistamine combined with a decongestant may help ease nasal congestion due to hay fever. The decongestant opens up nasal passages, and the antihistamine helps control allergy symptoms like nasal discharge and itchy nose and eyes.
