A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member asked a question 💭

What Type Of Medicine Can A Person Take In The Morning To Help With Allergies That Will Help
A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member asked a question 💭

when I have breakfast in the morning and here is a different bread that I haven't had before than 30 minutes later my throat get sore and lips start to hurt. If there was something I could take that would help with the allergy in the event that I did eat something that I was allergy to but not enough to cause a full blown out reaction.

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member

I am now taking a allergy pill first thing in the morning. It seems to help me some. Thanks to everyone for the updates. Happy Holidays.
