What Is Allergen Immunotherapy?
Allergen immunotherapy is an allergy management and treatment option. This therapeutic treatment option involves administering small amounts of allergens to alter immunity and your are no longer very allergic to the allergens anymore. Best of all, it can turn off that allergic immune response off for many years to come.
Allergen immunotherapy can be given under the tongue (sublingual immunotherapy), or given by injections (subcutaneous immunotherapy). Subcutaneous immunotherapy is more effective, but requiring visits to our office for injections, whereas sublingual immunotherapy is less effective but more convenient. The insurance company coverage of sublingual immunotherapy varies.
Allergen immunotherapy may be helpful for environmental allergies, such as: grass pollens, tree pollens, weed pollens, dust mites, cats, dogs*
Most people who are frustrated with environmental allergies may be able to benefit from allergen immunotherapy. While allergy shots are most commonly recommended for adults and children age 6 and older, they may also be administered for children of younger ages. A consultation with our team in Oregon can help you determine if these therapeutic treatments are a good fit for you and your needs.
