Blocking Allergy Symptoms: How Pretreatment Works
Tackle allergies before they start, and you could be breathing a lot easier.
Allergy Pretreatment: The Importance of Control
According to the experts, the secret to living with allergies is being prepared. If you can anticipate when and where you’ll have allergy symptoms, you can often prevent them from developing. This is why allergy pretreatment is so important.
“Controlling allergy symptoms is really important in reducing complications like chronic sinusitis and the progression into asthma,” says Bernstein.
Don’t be passive. Instead, work with your doctor -- or a specialist such as an allergist and immunologist -- and come up with your allergy pretreatment plan.
“Even if you have allergies, you should be able to enjoy the outdoors, your home, your pets, and your job,” says Kelkar. “As long as you take the proper precautions, you should be able to do whatever you want.”
