To combat allergies we have given nettle tea to our young son. He doesn't like swallowing pills but he takes well to teas. You can either purchase a herbal tea or buy the nettle in a capsule, open it up and put it into a tea bag that you can purchase from the grocery store or even a coffee filter with a rubber band on it. Then cook it like you usually do your other tea bags and the put a saucer on the top and let it sit for about 7 minutes to get the medicinal properties to infuse into the water. It is highly effective! Of course you can just swallow some capsules if you are older but it may take longer to work that way so you need to get into your system right away.
Below is a cute video that I found on You Tube to demonstrate about Nettle.
