First steps to consider
- If you have mild to moderate symptoms, you should try to avoid allergens, like going inside if you have seasonal allergies, or leaving a room with animal dander.
- At-home treatments include OTC antihistamines to reduce your reaction, and decongestants and eye drops to treat symptoms.
- If you’ve been prescribed an “EpiPen” for severe allergies, know when to use it and call 911.
When you may need a provider
- You have known allergies and OTC allergy medications are not working.
- You haven’t had allergic reactions before.
Go to the ER if you have any of the following symptoms, which could be a sign of a life-threatening reaction:
- Wheezing or trouble breathing
- Swelling of tongue or throat
- Anaphylaxis (skin rash, nausea, vomiting, difficulty breathing, and shock)
