Answer

An abundance of educational material is available from many resources such as medical associations, professional societies (eg, American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology), and pharmaceutical companies. All basically instruct the patient to avoid triggers, use medications, and see a specialist if symptoms persist. Some educational materials are very sophisticated, and several pharmaceutical companies provide extensive web sites to assist patients.

For patient education resources, see the Allergy Center, as well as Hay Fever, Indoor Allergies, and Allergy Shots.
