These types of mild symptoms can be treated using nasal decongestants, eye drops, anti histamines and topical creams for the hives or rashes.

Symptoms like continuous itching and difficulty in breathing can be termed as moderate while severe symptoms include swelling in different parts of the body which can even cause discomfort while swallowing food or breathing problems. Sometimes nausea, diarrhea and vomiting can also occur when it is severe. At times one can even feel dizzy with no clarity of thoughts. The moment you find yourself suffering from any of these symptoms then seeking immediate medical help is important and advisable. These are the symptoms or the life threatening condition called anaphylaxis.
