at the Yale Sinus and Allergy Program are on the leading edge of research and treatment for a wide range of sinus and allergy conditions and disorders. We specialize in helping patients with difficult and challenging conditions and those who have been unable to find relief from previous approaches in medical and surgical treatments. We understand how frustrating the symptoms of allergic rhinitis can be. Often, allergic rhinitis affects daily life, such as working and spending time with your loved ones. We are here to help.
The best way to treat allergic rhinitis is to avoid the allergen, if possible. Once your allergies have been triggered, different medications may help alleviate symptoms, such as nasal saline irrigations, antihistamines, corticosteroids, and decongestants. Immunotherapy, where you are exposed to small quantities of the allergen through injections or drops, can help build up tolerance to the allergen over a period of time. In the long term, this well help decrease symptoms.
