Natural and holistic remedies include:

A chemical called a flavonoid is found in foods such as onions, tomatoes, grapes, and tea. This chemical is a natural anti-inflammatory that can block histamine’s effect before they even start. Quercetin is a type of flavonoid antioxidant that’s found in plant foods, including leafy greens, tomatoes, berries, and broccoli. Incorporating these foods into your diet is a great way to avoid having to treat seasonal allergies.
