Could Your Allergies Benefit From Allergy Extract?

For the allergy prone, it’s not uncommon to cycle through a host of treatments — antihistamines, decongestants and who knows what else — before eventually becoming exasperated and, not to mention, hopelessly bleary-eyed and runny-nosed. When that happens, it’s time to consult the experts. And if you’ve found yourself out of luck, allergy extract might be just the remedy. Luckily, you can get ‘em at Allergy & Asthma Specialists, the area’s go-to resource for allergy extract.

What it is: Treatment using allergy extract, called immunotherapy, is the most effective treatment in nearly eliminating the allergic reaction. (The aforementioned antihistamines and decongestants treat only the symptoms.)

How it works: Formulating and prescribing an allergy extract for a patient is quite a balancing act. The allergist must prescribe an extract with all the components that cause an allergic reaction in that patient in a strength and dosage that will effectively improve the body’s tolerance to the allergens and provide relief of symptoms while at the same time not cause an allergic reaction. In other words, if the extract is too weak, you will continue to have symptoms. If the extract is too strong, you could have a serious allergic reaction. Thankfully, the allergists at A&AS are experts in formulating the proper prescription.

Who should use it: Allergens around us, such as pollen, dust, mold and animal dander, cause allergic reactions in one out of three individuals resulting in allergic diseases such as asthma and allergy symptoms including coughing, itchy, watery eyes, runny nose, headaches or congestion. Consult an allergist when typical treatments just aren’t providing satisfactory relief and they may find that you’re a candidate for allergy extract.

Where to go: Once the prescription for allergy extract is formulated, the extract is produced in the Allergy & Asthma Specialists extract laboratory. The allergists supervise every step in the process from testing to formulation to production. Afterward, your symptoms are monitored at follow-up appointments. Bonus: they have eight locations in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs, so allergy sufferers from the ‘burbs to Center City are set.

The board certified allergists of Allergy & Asthma SpecialistsSM are experts in formulating and prescribing allergy extract and offer all three types of immunotherapy at offices located in Center City Philadelphia, Blue Bell, King of Prussia, Jenkintown, Doylestown, Lansdale, Pottstown and Collegeville, Pennsylvania.
