Hello, I understand your concerns towards your child. But allergy is such a condition has medications only when it has flared up by it do not have medications to prevent it. We follow only wait and watch phenomenon untill it comes down we need to keep the boy on anti allergic medications. It may take various time span to control. But actually there is way to get down the huge levels by a injection bit thag is only used in allergic asthma and it is way costly. You cam consult regarding this with your doctor. Thank you
