Immunotherapy has been used to treat allergies for over a century. Immunotherapy works by slowly exposing the immune system to your allergens to get the body used to them. This causes the body to learn to respond to your allergens in a normal way.
Your immunotherapy treatment plan will be fully customized and will be developed based on your test results and medical profile. The two types of immunotherapy include allergy shots and allergy drops. Both are safe, effective, and provide long-term relief.
- Allergy Shots - these shots are administered in the doctor’s office and contain a small amount of your allergens
- Allergy Drops - a more convenient alternative to allergy shots. Drops are placed under your tongue and can be done from wherever you are at your convenience.
There are currently no shots or drops for food allergies. However, allergy drops and shots are safe and effective for most allergy problems.
