What are the treatments for hay fever?

For mild to moderate cases of hay fever, self-care measures and over-the-counter medications may be a suitable treatment. However, for symptoms that are particularly uncomfortable or severe, one or more prescription medications may be required. You may need to try different combinations until a treatment that works is found. Some options to discuss with your doctor include antihistamines, decongestants, corticosteroids and eye drops.
