Hi and thanks for the query,
You can use nasal steroid sprays for prolonged periods of time without side effects since the steroid is a topical one and systemic sbsorption is very little.
Immunotherapy is being used recently to cure allergies.
Talk to your doctor to know if you are a candidate.
Apart from that there is no other treatment for allergy.
