Treatment for Allergies

While allergies cannot be fully cured, their complications can be managed with proper treatment.

  • Immunotherapy

    Immunotherapy or allergy shots is a treatment method to gradually decrease your immune system’s response to particular allergens and control allergic symptoms over time. Immunotherapy is typically performed by injecting small amounts of specific substances (allergens) that trigger your allergic reactions. The aim of immunotherapy is to build up a tolerance to the allergens and slowly diminish these allergic symptoms.

    Alternatively, a non-injection method known as sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) may also be performed. This involves placing a tablet containing a mixture of several allergens under your tongue, allowing it to be slowly absorbed. SLIT is effective in alleviating allergic symptoms such as runny nose, congestion or eye irritation.
