Finding Long-Term Relief: Allergy Treatments

Most allergic reactions result in mild symptoms that include sneezing, runny nose, stuffy nose, headaches, sore throat, cough, watery eyes, itching or rashes. Allergies can be year round or seasonal and only cause reactions during certain times of the year. These allergies can be affected by the weather.

Once your condition is observed and diagnosed by your ENT, and if allergies are the primary cause of your issues, your treatment plan may include either allergy shots (immunotherapy) or allergy drops (sublingual immunotherapy - SLIT).

What are Allergy drops and allergy shots?

  • Allergy Shots (Immunotherapy)

    Immunotherapy, administered through regular shots (1-3 times a week), helps your body adapt to small amounts of the allergens your body reacts to. Over time, your body adjusts, and reactions to those allergens reduce and can disappear. Immunotherapy can be an effective treatment for allergies, but is not a treatment for food-related allergies.

  • Allergy Drops

    Allergy drops are sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT). They are an alternative to allergy shots that can be taken pain-free at home. Drops are placed under the tongue and left to sit for 1-2 minutes before swallowing. Similar to allergy drops, over the course of months or years, your reactions to allergens can reduce and subside with consistent treatment.
