Answer

Mast Cell Stabilizers

Mast cell stabilizers such as cromolyn may be used for eosinophilic esophagitis.

Cromolyn sodium

Cromolyn inhibits the release of histamine, leukotrienes, and other mediators from sensitized mast cells exposed to specific antigens. It has no intrinsic anti-inflammatory, antihistamine, or vasoconstrictive effects.
