Allergies | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What can be done to prevent the condition?

There is little that can be done to prevent allergies from developing. Once they have developed, flare-ups can be reduced by allergy shots. These shots decrease a person's sensitivity to the allergen.

What are the long-term effects of the condition?

Most allergic reactions simply cause extreme discomfort. They usually do not pose any long-term risk to the body.

What are the risks to others?

Allergies are not contagious and pose no risk to others.
