Care Plan


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.
