There are a number of approaches to the management of allergies and they are often complementary.  That is management may include or require more than one component.  These are: 1) identification (by history and skin testing) of the allergic substances so that one can reduce exposure to these allergens, 2) desensitization by the chronic administration of extracts of the troublesome allergens, either by “allergy shots” or material placed under the tongue, 3) non-sedating antihistamines, 4) inhaled nasal steroids and, 5) a class of drugs called leukotriene modifiers taken by mouth.  If medication prescribed by your family physician does not provide symptom relief, you might want to check-out this WebMD website:  http://www.webmd.com/asthma/guide/asthma-medications or this one:  http://www.webmd.com/allergies/tc/allergic-rhinitis-overview

Good luck
