Immunology:  An Effective Treatment for Allergies

Are you currently suffering from allergic reactions? Immunology (or Allergy Shots) may be for you.

Allergy shots can be used to control symptoms triggered by:

  • Seasonal allergies
  • Indoor allergens

Benefits of Immunotherapy

Allergy shots have been proven to be an effective treatment, especially if you are experiencing one or more of the following scenarios:

  1. It’s impossible to avoid the things that cause your allergic reactions, and allergy medications don’t control your symptoms well
  2. Allergy medications cause bothersome side effects or interactions with other medications you need to take
  3. You want to reduce your long-term use of allergy medication

Dr. Nguyen’s 10+ years of experience inform his recommendations for which allergies may require medication and when other methods may better suit a patient. Immunotherapy requires an understanding that only comes with years of devoted practice and study.

What to Expect With Immunology

Each allergy shot contains a trace amount of the allergen or allergens that trigger an allergic reaction in an individual. These shots contain just enough allergens to stimulate a patient’s immune system, but not enough to cause a full-blown reaction. Over time, the doctor increases the dose of allergens in each allergy shot, strengthening the body’s immune system in the process.

Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT) – An Alternative to Allergy Shots

Sublingual immunotherapy works similar to allergy shots, but unlike injections, sublingual immunotherapy is given as drops under the tongue. Patients take the drops in the convenience of their own homes instead of going to the doctor’s office every week for shots.
