Treatments for Animal Allergy in Children

Your child's doctor may treat your child using immunotherapy (allergy shots) or medication that includes steroidal and antihistamine nose sprays and antihistamine pills.

There are many things you can do at home to help reduce your child's allergic reactions:

  • Vacuum frequently and use air filters.
  • Send pets outdoors more often, bathing them, or limiting the number of rooms they're allowed in can also help.
