An allergy occurs when the immune system incorrectly identifies a harmless substance—such as tree pollen, pet dander, mold, and dust mites—as a harmful invader. In an attempt to protect the body, the immune system raises its defenses, leading to the unpleasant side effects, including a runny nose, nasal congestion, sinus headaches, asthma attacks, itchy, red eyes, and skin irritations. Allergy MD offers a quick and painless allergy test as well as a customized and proven allergy drop treatment, also known as sublingual immunotherapy that provides effective long-lasting relief to treat the underlying cause of allergy symptoms.
During the initial consultation, a specialized allergy technician analyzes the patient's medical history and performs an allergy test to determine the patient's specific respiratory allergies. Next, an allergist formulates a personalized allergy drop solution that desensitizes the immune system to a specific allergen. Compared to allergy shots, allergy drops are painless and can be taken at home or on the go without the discomfort and inconvenience of a weekly trip to the doctor’s office to receive an injection.
Allergy MD recommends a treatment duration of 3 to 5 years for patients to obtain long-lasting relief from their recurring allergy symptoms.
