    Avoidance is generally the best way to deal with food allergies but if there is a reaction most are treated with an antihistamine.

    It depends on the allergy.  Some allergies have special medicines to treat it.  Most can be treated with something like Benadryl or a type of antihistamine.  However, the best method of treating food allergies is simply avoiding the food.

    As catcran and cfraissi stated, avoidance is the best method of treatment. For those with severe food allergies, epinephrine is usually prescribed to keep with them at all times to prevent going into anaphylactic shock if there is accidental exposure to the food. A medical alert piece of jewelry should also be worn by anyone with severe food allergies.
