Health Tip: Taming Allergies
(HealthDay News) -- To prevent allergic reactions -- from latex to pollen -- having an allergy management plan is essential, says the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.
The AAFA asks people to:
- Avoid contact with allergens.
- Take medicines as prescribed.
- Keep epinephrine with you if you are at risk for anaphylaxis.
- Keep a diary to track what causes or worsens symptoms.
If you or a loved one has a severe allergic reaction, call 911 immediately.
