Why allergy shots?
Allergy shots (subcutaneous immunotherapy) are a traditional time-honored method of desensitization which is effective at treating inhalant and environmental allergies. This method requires consistent treatment over a period of several years in order to achieve maximum efficacy. An incrementally increasing dose of the antigens to which you are allergic is administered via injection in order to provoke the immune system to produce antibodies. Allergy shots are a good treatment option for people who can't adhere to a self-administered protocol. Shots require a weekly visit to our office and are covered by most insurance companies.
