It happens every year. You suffer with the same symptoms — a stuffy nose, red, watery eyes, headaches, congestion or shortness of breath — that can last for weeks. You scour the drugstore, trying different brands of antihistamines and decongestants that do not effectively treat your symptoms and can actually make you feel worse. These medications only treat the symptoms of allergic disease. Allergy immunotherapy is the only available treatment that can reduce your symptoms, alter the course of allergic disease and induce cure. 

Immunotherapy is a medical term for allergy injections, allergy drops under your tongue, and the new allergy tablets. Immunotherapy treats the underlying cause of your allergies, slowly allowing your body to build up its own natural immunity safely and effectively.

The allergists at Allergy & Asthma SpecialistsSM are experts in diagnosing your allergic disease triggers and developing safe and effective immunotherapy. Allergy & Asthma SpecialistsSM is the area’s most trust source for allergy immunotherapy.

At your appointment with an allergist, you will be tested with a panel of allergens that include several different types of grass, weed and tree pollen, molds, animal dander and dust constituents. Your allergy triggers will be identified and treatment will be recommended. Three types of immunotherapy could be considered: injections, drops under your tongue or tablets.

The allergists then develop an extract prescription based on your individual test results. Immunotherapy extract (for both injections and drops) are produced in the labs of Allergy & Asthma SpecialistsSM under the supervision of an allergist. You can rest assured that your extract is safe and effective.

If you have seasonal allergies, it is best to start treatment at least six months before your most symptomatic time of year. If you start treatment in November, you will be somewhat symptom free of your springtime allergies. After that, you can — quite literally — breathe easy.

The fellowship trained, 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.
