Some new treatment guidelines published by CBS News may be able to help those experiencing the sniffles. Recently developed immunotherapy drops taken orally work similarly to allergy shots by introducing small amounts of allergens into the immune system to hep build a tolerance. The American Academy of Otolaryngology recommends a newer generation of antihistamines which are less sedating, and steroids for the most serious allergy sufferers.
