Allergy Treatment Options:
Allergies can be treated through avoidance of the allergic substance, medications such as antihistamines and nasal steroid sprays, and immunotherapy, which works to desensitize the allergen.
Treating Allergies With Immunotherapy:
Immunotherapy is the process of gradually introducing allergens into your body in increasing amounts until your immune system builds up a tolerance and no longer reacts. Although medication can treat the symptoms of allergies on a day-to-day basis, immunotherapy is the only way to actually reduce your allergy sensitivities.
Allergy shots have long been the primary mode of allergy treatment in the United States but many patients are switching to allergy drops as a painless, more convenient alternative.
