Homeopathy for Acute Allergies

April showers bring May flowers and often the uncomfortable symptoms of seasonal allergies. Instead of reaching for over-the-counter antihistamines, get to the root of the problem by choosing a homeopathic medicine instead. Homeopathy can relieve the symptoms of allergies based on the foremost principle of Homeopathy – Similia similibus curentur: “Let likes be cured with like.” Since allergies are often a chronic condition, it will take the skill of a professional homeopath to eradicate them, but when acute symptoms match, the following remedies can be helpful:

Allium cepa

For allergies, hay fever, or the common cold, when there are profuse tears, a runny nose with burning discharge, and sneezing.


Ragweed, when made into a homeopathic medicine, is useful for symptoms of hay fever when the nose is red, swollen, stuffed up, and sneezing. The eyelids are itching, the nose is bleeding, and respiration is wheezing.


When the eyes are burning and irritated with profuse tearing, this homeopathic medicine may offer relief from seasonal allergies, colds, or conjunctivitis.

When acute allergies are marked by fits of violent sneezing, with a runny, itchy nose and mouth, this homeopathic medicine can offer great relief.


For acute allergies or hay fever that are accompanied by intolerable itching in the nose, throat, and soft palate, along with dryness in the nose, mouth, and throat, this homeopathic medicine can provide relief.

My first introduction to the wonders of homeopathy began when, as a new user of homeopathy, Allium cepa was able to effectively resolve my husband’s allergies when they flared up. This astonishing feat convinced me of the superiority of homeopathy and sparked my interest to study at Homeopathy School International and become a certified homeopath.
