Immunotherapy is a procedure designed to eliminate allergens.
During immunotherapy, you are given tiny doses via shots or drops of the things that you are allergic to. These doses are enough to stimulate your immune system but not cause a full-blown allergic reaction. Over time your immune system builds up a tolerance to the allergen and allergy symptoms diminish.
Clinically known as subcutaneous immunotherapy, allergy shots have been used for over 100 years. This tried and true therapy works with your body’s own immune system to naturally desensitize you to allergen triggers. Most patients undergoing this treatment will experience a lasting reduction in allergy symptoms, as well as a decreased dependence on allergy medication.
At Central Texas Sinus & Allergy, we recognize that many allergy sufferers may not be able to comply with an allergy injection regimen. That is why we have developed treatments around allergy drops. Allergy drops are a popular treatment for allergy symptoms because they have an inherently lower cost, require fewer clinic visits, require no needles, and treats the cause of allergies and not just the symptoms. Instead of receiving weekly shots in the doctor’s office, patients administer allergy drops daily under their tongue in the comfort of their own home. For many people with hectic home, school, work, and travel schedules, this treatment option offers a convenient solution.
