Allergy Drops: Clinically-Proven Allergy Relief
Side effects related to allergy drop immunotherapy treatment plans are generally mild. Patients may experience itching or tingling inside of the mouth or mild swelling beneath the tongue. Uncommon reactions may include wheezing, stomach irritation, and nausea in asthmatic patients. Instances of severe allergic reaction are exceedingly rare. Allergy drops are recommended for asthmatic patients. Ask a member of our allergy care team if allergy drops are right for you.
Allergy Drops Instead of Shots!
Allergy shots or sublingual (under the tongue) drops are used for people with respiratory allergies caused by pollens, animal dander, molds and dust mites. Speak with your CT ENT allergy care professional about your allergies and the individualized treatment options available to you.
An allergic reaction is caused when our body’s immune system mistakes a foreign substance —such as dander, pollen, dust, mold and chemicals – as being harmful. In response, your body produces antibodies to protect you. Sometimes, however, our immune systems overreact, producing in excess a certain antibody known as IgE, which causes allergic reactions.
An estimated 1 in 5 Americans experience allergies every year. Treatment options are available for sustainable relief from symptoms allergies can cause.
