What is Immunotherapy?

Immunotherapy is a preventive treatment for allergic reactions. Allergy immunotherapy involves giving a patient a dose of the substance to which they are allergic and gradually increasing it. The incremental increases of the allergen cause the immune system to become less sensitive to the substance reducing the allergic reaction when the substance is reencountered later. Immunotherapy can also reduce the inflammation characterizing rhinitis and asthma.

The Types of Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy is a great way to treat allergies. The body’s immune system can learn to respond in new and healthy ways through allergen exposure. We will review your test results and medical profile to determine the best treatment plan for you. The two types of immunotherapy options we offer are:

  • Allergy Shots– Allergy shots are typically administered in the upper arm and contain a small number of your allergens.
  • Allergy Drops– Allergy drops are placed under your tongue and are a more convenient alternative to allergy shots.

How Does Immunotherapy Work?

Immunotherapy works similarly to a vaccine. The body responds to the injected allergen and develops immunity or tolerance to it with its gradually increased doses.

The Benefits of Immunotherapy

When it comes to immunotherapy, patients with various allergies can enjoy numerous benefits. Patients who do not tolerate oral medications well might do better with allergy shots or drops. Allergy shots can be taken weekly and then eventually monthly. The cost of allergy shots is less expensive than oral medications in the long run, as they will not always need to be taken. With immunotherapy allergy shots, patients can expect the following benefits:

  • Decreased dependence on oral allergy medication
  • Decreased long-term costs
  • Long-term allergy relief
  • The causes of your allergies being treated, not just their symptoms
  • Multiple allergies can be treated at once
