Welcome to ehealthforum

You have not mentioned the symptoms clearly as what do you mean by allergy.If you have stuffy nose,sore throat etc then consider doing steam inhalation 2 to 3 times a day.If there is fever you can take Paracetamol tablet.Usually other medications are to be avoided especially during first trimester.
If the symptoms are too bothersome consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take Care!
