Is there a cure for those that are allergic to make up?

Is there a cure for those that are allergic to make up?

Hello and thanks for your question. Unfortunately, as with most allergies, there is not a complete and total cure for them. The best measures that can be taken to treat them are using oral antihistamines (claritin or zyrtec are good over-the-counter brands), a leukotriene-inhibitor like Singulair, nasal and/or inhaled steroids as needed. Additionally, it may be necessary to have allergy injections to control the overall body response to any environmental allergens you are allergic to.

Doing all of these measures to control the body's overally response to allergens may help you to get back to using non-hypoallergenic make-ups, but otherwise, there isn't anything else that will cure this.

Does that make sense? Do you have any other questions?

Thank you for the information and time you have done. One small question though. Other than medication and injections are their any other options?

No. Unfortunately, other than medications which help blunt the body's immune response and the injections, there does not appear to be any hope of curing this at this time. Sorry.
