Medications can greatly improve or even eliminate allergy symptoms. Too many think, “It’s just allergies.” While soldiering through, they end up with more serious problems, such as ear or sinus infections.
Typically these medicines will involve antihistamines, decongestants, corticosteroids, ointments, and in some cases, Epinephrine, for life-threatening anaphylaxis reactions.
In some cases, we might recommend Immunotherapy. This will include the traditional rounds of “allergy shots” and sublingual (under-the-tongue) low-dose allergens to build tolerance over time.
These allergy shots are designed to stimulate your immune system and decrease your reaction to specific allergens. We will decrease your dosage once we obtain the desired results.
Immunotherapy (allergy shots) helps reduce hay fever symptoms in about 85% of people with allergic rhinitis.
