The philosophy behind Allergy Drops (sublingual allergy immunotherapy) is similar to that of subcutaneous immunotherapy or allergy shots. Allergy shots work by gradually exposing the body to measured amounts of a specific allergen to help the body build a tolerance to allergy triggers. After a period of treatment with allergy shots, when a person encounters the particular allergens, they will have a reduced or very minor allergic response. Sublingual allergy immunotherapy works in the same way, without the shots! Rather than only offering shots, we can create a custom-designed formula in the form of Allergy Drops that are taken orally.
