The most effective treatment plan for food allergies uses a multifaceted approach. Treatment plans are also individualized to best address the specific cause and severity of the food allergies, and the patient's age and medical history. In some cases, children might "grow out" of food allergies.
Treatment of food allergies begins with the prevention of allergic reactions. This includes diagnosing the specific food or food additive allergen or allergens and avoiding ingesting them. This requires diligent reading of foods labels and asking about ingredients when eating out.
Some people with severe food allergies may need to carry a medication called injectable epinephrine with them at all times to treat their food allergies. For severe food allergies and anaphylactic reactions, injectable epinephrine can reverse the reaction. Immediate continuing care and medical monitoring in an emergency setting is necessary after the use of injectable epinephrine.
