Discover the Latest Allergy Treatment Options in Atlanta
The allergists of the Center for Allergy and Asthma of Georgia provide Atlanta patients with top quality allergy treatments. In our metro Atlanta medical offices, our board-certified allergy specialists perform a variety of allergy tests to determine allergic triggers.
Using this information, our medical doctors prescribe the most effective allergy treatment to relieve symptoms from common Atlanta allergens.
Our Atlanta allergy treatments include:
Allergy Shots, or Immunotherapy
Immunotherapy, or allergy shots, provide Atlanta patients with a long-term allergy treatment option that significantly reduces allergy symptoms caused by seasonal, indoor, and insect allergies, and helps alleviate chronic conditions such as asthma and eczema.
There are a variety of allergy over-the-counter and prescription medications available for the treatment of nasal and skin allergies. Allergy medication often includes antihistamines, histamine blockers, decongestants, and corticosteroids.
Epinephrine auto-injectors deliver adrenaline directly into the bloodstream, and work to reduce swelling in the airways and raise low blood pressure. Epinephrine auto-injectors reverse severe allergic reactions – anaphylaxis – and are typically prescribed to those with food allergies.
Allergy Drops, or Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT)
Allergy drops work similarly to allergy shots, but are administered under the tongue in either drop or tablet form. After identifying a patient’s allergic trigger, our board-certified allergists create an extract that slowly works to reduce the immune system’s response to the allergen.
Unlike most allergy medications, allergy shots and drops attack the source of the allergy, rather than simply treating the symptoms.
