There are probably as many homeopathic remedies for allergies as there are people who suffer with allergies. Although this may be a slight exaggeration, it does show you that there is no single remedy, or even small selection, of homeopathic allergy relief medicines.
Why do I say this, especially when you can buy over-the-counter homeopathic allergy remedies?
These over-the-counter homeopathic remedies are what we call complexes. A complex is a mixture of various remedies in the hope that one will help. The remedies chosen do have an affinity with the common symptoms of the problem they are trying to help. But there is a wide variety of different people all with different (even slightly) symptoms, expressions and causes.
For example, one allergy sufferer may have intensely itchy eyes, perhaps that only occur at a particular time of day. Another may have copious nasal discharge which is difficult to stop. Another may sneeze a lot, possibly even in breathless spasms. Another may come out in skin blotches. Someone else may have an itchy palate. Someone else may have a mixture of symptoms.
Common causes of, or should I say things that exacerbate, allergies include various pollens, dust, animal fur, various foods, various smells especially chemical ones, etc.
Allergic reactions can vary from mild, to annoying, to serious, to life threatening. Anaphylactic shock can be a life threatening allergic reaction.
Certainly I am all in favour of people taking control of their health. And I am all in favour of people looking for natural solutions to their health issues. So these over-the-counter natural allergy remedies are great. And they can help enormously.
However, all complexes must be made in very low potencies, or strengths. You can’t mix a lot of powerful strengths into a single medicine as you have no idea what effect this will have. The low potencies, while they can be hugely helpful, do have a limited range of action. Although you may need a higher potency of one of the remedies in the complex, you would have no idea which one.
Some people are just relieved to find something natural that helps their symptoms. Relying on chemical drugs leads you down a slippery slope. So if that is all you want, these complexes may serve you very well. But you can aim for the stars, as it were. You can look for permanent solutions to your health issues.
For that, you would need to consult with a professional homeopath. Most of us aim to find not just a single homeopathic remedy for allergies that would suit you the best, although this is never ruled out.

Or you can get professional help to treat all your health issues, including your allergies.
Searching for the most appropriate homeopathic medicine for allergies may provide you with more than you were aiming for. It may start you on a wonderful journey to better health through holistic means. Enjoy the journey!
