THE SNEEZING SEASON IS HERE!
The biggest Spring allergy trigger is pollen. Trees, grasses, and weeds release these tiny grains into the air. When they get into the nose of someone who is allergic, they send the body's defenses wild. The immune system mistakenly sees the pollen as a threat and releases antibodies that attack the allergens. That leads to the release of chemicals called histamines into the blood. Histamines trigger the runny nose, itchy eyes, and other symptoms.
Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT)
Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT) is an alternative method of treating allergies without weekly injections. Treatment involves daily dosing of self-administered allergy drops under your tongue. This safe and effective treatment is custom formulated based on your individual test results. Allergy drops are an excellent option for children, patients who are unable to commit to weekly injection appointments, and those looking for sooner symptom relief.
