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.
