What Are Allergy Drops?

Allergy drops, also known as sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT), are another treatment option for allergies. These drops contain an extract of the allergen that is affecting the patient and are placed under the tongue for absorption into the body. Through this process, the body can develop a long-term tolerance to the allergen and reduce the likelihood of an allergic reaction. Unlike treatments that only target the symptoms of allergies, such as medications, allergy drops treat the root cause of allergies by addressing the body’s immune response.

What Are the Benefits of Allergy Drops?

Allergy drops, or sublingual immunotherapy, work similarly to allergy shots in which the body is exposed to small amounts of the allergen to help build immunity and reduce the severity of the reaction. However, one of the most significant differences is the method by which the treatment is administered. Allergy shots for many can be an uncomfortable experience, which may prevent them from seeking treatment. Allergy drops are administered via droplets under the tongue. Some additional benefits of allergy drops include the following:

  • Effective against numerous types of allergens
  • Administered at home
  • No Major side effects
  • Reduces the need for long-term allergy medication
  • Affordable
  • Effective when other medications fail

Our Immunotherapy Options

Immunotherapy has been a trusted treatment for allergies for more than 100 years. Its purpose is to train your immune system to respond in healthier ways to allergens that would otherwise make you sick. We will create a personalized treatment plan based on your medical profile and test results. Two types of immunotherapy are available – allergy shots and drops, both of which are long-lasting and safe treatments. Unfortunately, no allergy drops or shots are available for food allergies. Nevertheless, these treatments are safe and effective for most allergy issues. You have the option to choose from a range of immunotherapy treatments.

Allergy Shots:  These shots are administered in the doctor’s office and contain a small number of your allergens. Allergy shots are typically administered in the upper arm.
Allergy Drops: Drops are a more convenient alternative to allergy shots. Drops are placed under your tongue and can be used conveniently.

Allergy Drops Put You in Control of Your Treatment

To effectively manage your allergies, it’s essential to address their underlying cause. While medications can help alleviate symptoms, they don’t provide a cure like allergy drops. Allergy drops work by retraining your immune system not to release histamine when allergens are present, providing long-term relief for allergy sufferers. While allergy shots are also effective, allergy drops offer a more accessible and comfortable option. They’re convenient, and affordable, and can bring comfort to patients struggling with allergies.

Comfort: No needles are required because you will simply place a small drop of liquid under your tongue to administer the solution.

Convenience: No more missing work because you can administer the drops on your own.

Cost: While the cost associated with allergy shots and allergy drops is comparable, the time and effort you save with an at-home treatment provides huge savings.

What Are the Risks With Allergy Shots & Drops?

Allergies commonly cause discomfort, whether triggered by hay fever, pet dander, or pollen. People who suffer from allergies can experience a range of symptoms, including itchy eyes, sneezing, and wheezing, making life challenging. Luckily, allergy drops offer an effective solution to alleviate these symptoms, regardless of the allergy type. Both allergy shots and drops are safe and usually come with mild side effects. Allergy shot side effects can include itching, swelling, redness at the injection site, headache, coughing, tiredness, mucus dripping down the throat, and sneezing. On the other hand, allergy drops’ side effects more commonly are mouth swelling and throat irritation.
