Treatment of food allergies involves a comprehensive team approach provided under the direction of an allergist, gastroenterologist and dietitian. Treatment may involve a combination of food avoidance and asthma medications to block the allergic response in the GI tract and to relieve symptoms. For people who are extremely sensitive to the food allergen, your doctor may recommend total avoidance of any exposure with the allergen, including touching or inhaling the problematic food as well as touching any surfaces that may have come into contact with it.
