Clinically-Established Allergy Therapy
Proven Immunotherapy Relief for people with allergies
Allergy shots may be administered to heal allergies that are the result of dust, animal dander, molds, pollen, environmental and seasonal allergies. For adults and children no younger than 5 years old, we advise allergy shots.
The early stage of therapy with allergy shot treatment starts with an increasing amount of allergens administered in each shot. Then the patient will continue to receive maintenance injections each week, for a year. Following the first year of injections, they may be spread out between 3 to 6 weeks. There is no common conventions for discontinuing the injections. The option of ending injection-based allergy treatment depends on what is necessary for the patient.
Allergy shot treatment is correlated with several potential side effects. Typically, “local reactions” can form, and may result in redness, swelling, and itching around the injection spot. These local reactions can materialize instantly or several hours following application of the shots. Therapy with ice and antihistamines is direct at providing treatment for local reactions and relieving the symptoms.
Anaphylaxis could also transpire after injections. However, countless research studies demonstrate limited odds of undergoing an anaphylactic reaction following an injection. An overwhelming amount occur within 30 minutes of an injection being dispensed, and for that reason we expect all of our allergy patients that are receiving injections, to stay at the clinic for a half hour after.
