Allergy shots is the most commonly used form of immunotherapy. It is very effective in reducing allergy symptoms and therefore the need for medication. It is the only treatment that allows us to make positive changes to the immune system, and can reduce the chances of developing new allergies and asthma.
Your allergy shots will include a combination of the allergens you are sensitive to, which can include pollens, molds, pets, insects and dust mites. Initially the shots are given once to multiple times a week. Once a maintenance dose is achieved, we continue shots on a monthly basis. This is done for anywhere between 3 to 5 years, sometimes longer.
Shots are given in office under physician-supervision, because there is a small chance of having an allergic reaction to the treatment.
