While allergy shots have been an effective way to combat severe allergies for quite some time, the use of allergy drops, or sublingual immunotherapy, is becoming more common. Allergy drops are a great alternative to weekly injections, especially for young children. Below are 5 facts about allergy drops and Dr. Jeffrey Hallett.
NEEDLE FREE RELIEF – Allergy drops are administered under the tongue. There is no need for a needle, which is a huge relief to many children! No more fear of a weekly shot!
YOUR SCHEDULE IS YOURS – These drops can be administered on your schedule. There’s no need to fit in time to visit Dr. Hallett each week for those shots.
LOW RISK – The risk for adverse reaction with allergy drops is lower than the risks with allergy shots. It does still exist, and therefore the drops should be administered with care.
USED FOR OVER 30 YEARS – Dr. Hallett is the most experienced, fellowship-trained and board-certified allergist in San Antonio to offer allergy drops. Allergy drops have been used in Europe for over 30 years and significantly refined over the past 25 years.
DAILY DOSE – After allergy testing is completed, an individualized extract prescription is prepared for each patient based on their specific allergy testing results. Patients take a daily dose of their allergy drop extract and advance through build up dilutions to reach their maintenance dose in just one month.
