Chronic allergies are a widespread condition that affects millions of people worldwide. An allergy occurs when the immune system overreacts to a foreign substance that is typically harmless to most people. Some of the most common chronic allergies include hay fever (allergic rhinitis), eczema, drug allergies, and food allergies.

The symptoms of chronic allergies are often persistent and can be difficult to manage. Some people may experience severe or mild allergy symptoms, including:

medical care

Sinus Congestion - Blockage or stuffiness of the nasal passages.

medical care

Coughing - Allergic coughing is a reaction to allergens such as pollen, dust mites, or pet dander.

medical care

Persistent Sneezing - A reflex action that occurs when the nasal passages are irritated by allergens.

medical care

Itching - A common symptom of allergies that can affect the skin, eyes, nose, and throat.

medical care

Facial Congestion - Feeling of pressure, fullness, or tightness in the face, usually around the sinuses or nasal passages.

medical care

Urticaria - Also known as hives, this is a skin condition characterized by the sudden appearance of itchy, red, or white welts or bumps on the skin.

Chronic allergies can also lead to life-threatening symptoms, such as asthma attacks and anaphylaxis.

The treatment for chronic allergies and allergy medications depends on the severity of symptoms and your medical history. Some commonly prescribed medications for chronic and seasonal allergies include:

medical care

Singulair - A leukotriene receptor antagonist that helps to reduce inflammation and swelling in the airways, making it easier to breathe.

medical care

Azelastine - An antihistamine that helps to reduce the symptoms of allergies, such as sneezing, itching, and runny nose.

medical care

Prednisone pack - A corticosteroid that is prescribed for severe allergy symptoms, such as difficulty breathing or swelling of the face and throat.

medical care

Cetirizine - An antihistamine that can be used to relieve allergy symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, and itchy or watery eyes.

medical care

Flonase - A corticosteroid nasal spray that helps to reduce inflammation in the nasal passages.

It is important to consult with a healthcare provider to diagnose your allergies and determine the best way to treat your allergies, as some medications may have negative interactions with others or have potential side effects due to undetected drug allergies.

Severe chronic allergies can be treated with a combination of medications, including antihistamines, corticosteroids, and immunomodulators.

Yes, there are long-term treatments for allergies. These include allergen immunotherapy, which involves regular exposure to small amounts of an allergen to desensitize the immune system, and ongoing use of medications such as antihistamines, corticosteroids, and immunomodulators to manage symptoms.


It is important to work with a healthcare practitioner to develop a long-term personalized treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs and medical history. Once you know what medication you need, getting prescription refills with CallonDoc becomes easy.

Yes, doctors can prescribe stronger allergy medicine for chronic allergies. For mild to moderate allergies, over-the-counter antihistamines, eye drops, and nasal steroids can be effective. However, for more severe allergies, doctors may prescribe oral or nasal corticosteroids, such as prednisone or fluticasone propionate; immunomodulators, such as cyclosporine or omalizumab; high-dose antihistamines, such as diphenhydramine or hydroxyzine; or emergency epinephrine shots, such as EpiPen or Auvi-Q, for severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis).

Both chronic and seasonal allergies can be caused by common allergens, such as latex; airborne allergens like pollen or mold, which usually cause asthmatic symptoms; insect stings; pet dander; dust; pollen; and drugs.

Unfortunately, chronic allergies are not curable. The only way to effectively manage allergies is by treating and controlling the symptoms. Another way to avoid experiencing allergy symptoms is by gradually identifying and removing potential allergens from your diet and environment.

Untreated allergies can not only be incredibly uncomfortable, but if you are continuously exposed to allergens without getting appropriate treatment, they can actually get worse. That’s why it’s vital to get effective allergy treatment from a medical professional
