Many people suffer from springtime allergies that cannot be controlled by medications. While all of their friends are out enjoying the spring weather, they are stuck indoors, knowing that if they go outside, they will suffer congestion, sneezing, stuffiness, and itchiness. CAA – the Center for Allergy and Asthma in Georgia – is now offering allergy drops for people with springtime allergies that need to find relief but have not seen improvement with other medications.

In order to get the best relief from allergy drops, it is important to see our Atlanta allergy specialists and start using the allergy drops as soon as possible and before the start of spring. The drops require about three weeks’ buildup and then a daily dosage throughout the spring allergy season to be as effective as possible.

The Benefits of Allergy Drops

Allergy drops are gaining in popularity around the world due to their relative ease of use – just drop one dosage under the tongue as necessary; allergy drops are sometimes referred to as sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) due to the application method. Allergy drops are especially helpful if other forms of treatment, including medications, have not been effective. Allergy drops should only be used in cases where springtime allergies are severe and have not been responsive to other medications. Always speak to a trusted allergist before beginning any sort of allergy medication.

If allergy drops are right for you, it is important that you begin a regimen as soon as possible. The longer you use allergy drops, the stronger the relief from springtime allergies they can provide. With spring not far off on the calendar, now would be the best time to start taking allergy drops regularly. Otherwise, you could begin taking allergy medicine in the middle of spring and need to wait before your symptoms improve.

Common springtime allergy symptoms allergy drops may help control include:

  • Runny or wet nose
  • Watery, stuffy, or itchy eyes
  • Chronic coughing and sneezing
  • Darkness or swelling under eyes

Allergy drops are known to be effective against numerous types of allergens, including grass, tree pollens, dander, dust mites, etc. Allergy drops are also meant to prevent the allergic reaction to allergens in the first place, meaning you are actually combating the cause of your allergies and not the symptoms.

Benefits of allergy drops include:

  • Reduced symptoms
  • Improved quality of life
  • Ability to be outdoors for longer periods of time, and more often
  • Easy to use

Insurance will usually not cover allergy drops. Do not worry, though. Since you only need to use allergy drops during the spring season, you will find that they are very cost effective, which is another nice benefit of this treatment method.
