Allergy Drops

Allergy drops, or sublingual immunotherapy, offer a safe, reliable alternative to allergy shots. Like allergy shots, allergy drops provide long-term relief from allergy symptoms, and are particularly effective against environmental allergens, such as insect, indoor, and seasonal allergies.

Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) is a widely accepted allergy treatment throughout Europe, South America, Asia, and Australia. This alternative allergy treatment is increasing in popularity in the United States, and offers Atlanta patients effective immunotherapy without regular office visits or allergen injections.

Allergy Drops Treat Atlanta Allergy Symptoms

Sublingual immunotherapy is an ideal alternative for Atlanta patients looking for lasting allergy treatment. However, immunotherapy is not the appropriate treatment option for everyone or for all allergies.

Allergy drops offer a long-term treatment solution to a variety of people who suffer from several types of allergies. People who would benefit the most from allergy drops include those who:

  • Desire long-term allergy control
  • Suffer from mild atopic dermatitis ( eczema)
  • Suffer from outdoor allergens like grass, ragweed, and tree pollens
  • Suffer from indoor allergens such as pet dander, dust mites, or mold
  • Desire a new treatment for hay fever
  • Prefer sublingual administration rather than injection
  • Want to treat the allergy cause rather than the symptoms
  • Suffer from severe or chronic conditions
  • Desire treatment different from allergy medication

Allergy Drops for Atlanta Children & Adults

The sublingual immunotherapy allergy treatment at the Center for Allergy and Asthma of Georgia is administered by our board-certified allergy specialists. During an initial exam, our experienced doctors use allergy testing to identify allergic triggers and sensitivities. Once our team has identified specific allergens, we develop an extract of that allergen and prepare the extract in either tablets or drops.

Because allergy drops can be administered at home, our patients don’t have to worry about the hassle of regular office visits for allergy shots. Our allergy specialists instruct our patients on the proper administration of the allergy drops during an office visit, as well as indicating the proper daily or weekly dosage.

Our board-certified allergy doctors recommend that sublingual immunotherapy be continued for three to five years to allow the body to develop a lasting immunity.
