Since you can’t entirely eradicate everything that triggers your child’s allergy or asthma, treatment is inevitable.
“You need to give your child an antiinflammatory in the area affected,” says Dr Sinclair. “For example, a cortisone spray if your child suffers from allergic rhinitis or cortisone on the skin if he suffers from eczema. Anti-inflammatories are the gold-standard therapy. While antihistamines are useful, they only offer symptomatic treatment such as relieving an itchy or runny nose.”
