Get Rid of Your Allergy Symptoms With Allergy Drops
Experiencing allergy symptoms such as headaches, itchy eyes, cough, and breathing issues can lead to fatigue as well as have a negative impact on your life. However, you are not alone as more than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies, and the pain associated with them, each year. Medications can be used to control your symptoms but they cannot treat the root cause of your allergies. Allergy drops are one of the most effective ways to retrain your body’s immune system to respond to allergies.
What Are Allergy Drops?
Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) is an alternative to allergy shots with the placement of allergy drops under the tongue. This treatment is achieved by utilizing all-natural extracts of specific allergens and placing those drops beneath the patient’s tongue. The body then absorbs the extract and the immune system is able to build a long-term tolerance to the allergen that once caused an allergic reaction. Therefore, allergy drops address the root cause instead of just the symptoms of allergies.
Allergy Drop Benefits
Allery drops provide a wide array of benefits. First, your immune system becomes less reactive and therefore less sensitive to allergens. Allergy drops are simple and can be administered at home allowing them to fit into all lifestyles and schedules. You will experience fewer trips to the doctor’s office and less of a physical disruption (since drops are simply placed under the tongue whereas allergy shots require injections under the skin of your arm). Other benefits include: convenience, a painless option, fewer risks than allergy shots, and drops can include multiple allergies in one dose.
What Type of Allergens Can Allergy Drops & Shots Treat?
- Bee Stings
- Dust Mites
- Pet Dander
- House Dust Mites
- Short Ragweed Pollen
- Grasses (sweet vernal, orchard, perennial rye, timothy and Kentucky bluegrass)
Our Immunotherapy Options
Immunotherapy has been used to treat allergies for over one hundred years. By exposing your immune system to allergens that disrupt your health, this treatment option assists your body in creating a long-term tolerance. Based on your individual allergy testing and your medical history, we will develop a unique treatment plan just for you. There are two immunotherapy options: allergy shots and allergy drops. Both are safe, effective, and long-lasting; while there are no allergy shots or drops for food allergies, either treatment encompasses most other allergies. Your options are:
Allergy Shots: The shots are administered in the doctor’s office and contain a trace amount of your allergens. Normally, allergy shots are given in the upper arm.
Allergy Drops: The drops are a more convenient option to allergy shots. Drops are placed under your tongue and can be administered at home.
You Can Be in Control of Your Treatment With Allergy Drops
By addressing the root cause of your allergies, you will be able to control the severity. Medications will prevent allergy symptoms but they will not cure an allergy like allergy drops can. Allergy drops work within your immune system to retrain its histamine response to allergens in and around your body. Long-term results provide sufferers with significant symptom relief and elimination. While allergy shots are just as effective, allergy drops provide a level of convenience, ease and affordability. Drops provide:
- Comfort: There are no needles required! A small drop of liquid under your tongue is all it takes to administer the solution.
- Convenience: There are no scheduling conflicts or missed days at work to receive shots since all drops can be done at home.
- Cost: While the cost associated with allergy shots and allergy drops is comparable, the time and effort you save with an at-home treatment provides huge savings.
What are the Risks Associated With These Treatments?
Whether your allergy triggers include pet dander or pollen, grasses or dust mites, allergies can cause severe discomfort with itchy eyes, sneezing, breathing issues, and so on. Sufferers can all agree that life becomes very uncomfortable. Long-term relief is possible with allergy shots and drops that are safe with only occasional mild side effects. Possible side effects of allergy shots consist of itching, swelling, redness at the injection site, headache, coughing, tiredness, mucus dripping down the throat, and sneezing. Possible side effects of allergy drops consist of throat irritation and mild mouth swelling.
