Allergy Immunotherapy

Did you know that allergy immunotherapy (allergy shots) can prevent the onset of asthma?

Immunotherapy involves giving gradually increasing doses of the substance, or allergen, to which the person is allergic. Before starting treatment, the allergist and patient identify triggers for allergy symptoms.

While common allergy medications often control symptoms; if you stop taking the medication(s), your allergy symptoms return shortly afterward. Allergy shots can potentially lead to lasting remission of allergy symptoms, and may play a preventive role in terms of development of asthma and new allergies.

If your asthma is triggered by an allergy, you should consider allergy shots, which are very effective in relieving allergy symptoms and in most cases can actually cure your allergy.
