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.
