No more needles or weekly office visits: explore our preferred alternative to allergy shots
Allergies can control lives. For many of our patients, it feels this way. Severe allergies make going for a walk, visiting a friend who owns pets, or running on a trail outside difficult or even impossible. You’ve consulted with doctors, searched online for solutions, hid away from your allergens, and received allergy shots.
Allergy shots are a common treatment for severe allergies that require regular doctor visits and getting poked frequently with needles. Though no one enjoys getting a shot, avoiding treatment is also not ideal. Without taking shots for your allergies, you may experience sinus infections, severe allergy symptoms and reactions, inflammation, and the worsening of other conditions, including asthma.
Allergy drops or allergy shots can make your life simpler and save you time.
Allergy drops can really help you
Allergy drops are sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) -- an allergy treatment that you can give yourself. They are known as an alternative treatment to allergy shots and were first made popular in Europe. These drops contain a small amount of your allergens and are simply placed under your tongue using a dropper. You hold the liquid under your tongue for one minute before swallowing, meaning the entire process takes less than a couple of minutes, allowing you to go on with your day.
Similar to allergy shots, the allergens in the drops help stimulate your immune system, but without the time, pain, and inconvenience associated with weekly visits to your doctor.
