Your Care
Avoid the substances that make your signs worse. Skin or blood tests may be
done to check for allergies. You may need medicines to treat your allergies.
Call your doctor if you have:

• Signs that get worse or keep you from doing your normal activities
• A fever over 101 degrees F or 38 degrees C

Talk to your doctor or nurse if you have any questions or concerns.
