Are you suffering from seasonal allergies? How about year-round allergies? If this sounds like you, you may want to consider taking advantage of the allergy shots offered at our office. Over the years, we have found that allergy shots are the most effective form of treatment for patients suffering from seasonal and year-round allergies. In fact, allergy shots can reduce symptoms, infections, and asthmatic problems by 80% to 90%.

We have found that allergy shots also help with other conditions, such as:

  • Insect allergies
  • Recurrent sinusitis
  • Chronic sinusitis
  • Eczema

How Do Allergy Shots Work?

Allergy shots are a form of immunotherapy and work by desensitizing the immune system to certain allergens. This happens by introducing and regularly exposing the body to the specific allergens. Of course, this process is monitored and done in a way that prevents patients from suffering any harmful side effects. These shots are the only form of treatment that can alter the immune system. Other forms of treatment and medication only treat allergy symptoms.

Should I Get an Allergy Shot?

If you have been suffering from allergies, it may be time to consider an allergy shot. At the Center for Allergy and Asthma of Georgia, our Atlanta allergy doctors can provide you with the necessary information regarding what forms of treatment would be best for you.

If cost is the issue, do not worry. Most of our patients have met their deductibles through their insurance carriers for the year. In these cases, the insurance companies cover the costs of the allergy serums and charges. That means the majority of our patients have taken advantage of these treatments without any out-of-pocket costs.
