No, but you can treat and control your symptoms. You’ll need to do all you can to prevent being exposed to things you’re allergic to -- for example, staying inside on days when the pollen count is high, or enclosing your mattress with a dust-mite-proof cover.
Allergy medicine can also help. You may be able to reduce your symptoms enough using over-the-counter allergy drugs. If not, your doctor can prescribe medication.
Whether you’re hiking, at a sports game, or a guest at an outdoor wedding, a bit of careful planning can help keep your allergy symptoms at bay so you can enjoy the great outdoors.
Here are tips from allergy experts.

You can also talk to an allergist about immunotherapy in the form of allergy shots or oral tablets or drops. These are what are considered disease modifying treatments. They don’t cure allergies, but they may significantly reduce your sensitivity to your allergy triggers and reduce your allergic response.
Sometimes children outgrow their allergies, particularly those to food.
