Dust Allergies


How Are Dust Allergies Treated?

Over-the-counter or prescription allergy drugs can help control your symptoms.

  • Antihistamines relieve itching, sneezing, and watery eyes.
  • Decongestants ease or unclog a stuffy nose.
  • Nasal steroids reduce swelling in your nose so you can breathe better.

You might be able to get allergy shots (immunotherapy). They treat allergies over a longer time. Ask your doctor if they make sense for you.
