Can hay fever be cured?

There is no cure or vaccination for hay fever; however, some children do outgrow the condition over time. It is also possible for hay fever to clear for an extended period of time and then return later in life. In many cases though, hay fever is a lifelong condition and symptoms return with each new exposure to a trigger. However, the outlook for hay fever is generally good when the condition is controlled with a combination of self-care measures and medications.
