Allergic Reaction (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Allergy shots: These are given to some people who have persistent and disruptive allergy symptoms.
Probiotics: There have been studies that have looked into the use of probiotics (live microorganisms thought to be beneficial to the body) to treat allergies, particularly atopic dermatitis in infants. Results of a recent meta-analysis were mixed, and their effectiveness has not yet been proven. More study is needed about the role of probiotics in the management of allergic reactions.
