Our ENTAllergy Treatment Plans are Designed Specifically for You.
We Provide Effective Immunotherapy Relief for Adults and Children.
Now that we have tested for the ENTAllergens that cause your symptoms, we can formulate a plan to desensitize your immune system long-term and minimize your ENTAllergy symptoms in the meantime. Your personal treatment plan can include options such as
- avoidance strategies to protect you from your ENTAllergy triggers as much as possible
- immunotherapy injections to gradually increase your tolerance to ENTAllergens
- sublingual immunotherapy (S.L.I.T.) drops to gradually increase your tolerance to ENTAllergens.
The exact details of the treatment plan depend on your specific ENTAllergies, the severity of your reaction, and your lifestyle and preferences. No two people respond to ENTAllergy triggers or to immunotherapy the same way. Our ENTAllergy specialty team will monitor your response and progress regularly during your treatment to make adjustments and keep you on the best course as your immune system responds.
What are the Advantages of ENTAllergy Drops?
Both ENTAllergy injections and sublingual drops are most often used to treat inhalant allergies caused by pollens, animal dander, molds and dust mites. Injections are one method of treatment that is effective but not always popular with patients. Sublingual drops are administered via a drop under the tongue, making this a great treatment plan for kids and busy parents. ENTAllergy drops are recommended for asthmatic patients.
Side effects related to ENTAllergy drop immunotherapy treatment 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. This means you can administer them conveniently at home.
