How Allergy Drops Work
January 22, 2019
Cedar season is almost over, but other seasonal allergies affect thousands in Central Texas year-round. Dr. Kelly H. Simpson, Allergy and Asthma physician at ARC Cedar Park Medical Plaza and ARC Far West Medical Tower, recently discussed using allergy drops as a solution to environmental allergies.
In this podcast from a recent ARC Healthcare Minute, Dr. Simpson explains how allergy drops work. She says, “Allergy drops are a type of immunotherapy that builds the body’s tolerance to an allergen and reduces the symptoms they cause.” An added benefit of allergy drops is that they do not require a visit to a doctor’s office or clinic once established. Dr. Simpson says, “The drops are self-administered at home after the first dose is tolerated in the doctor’s office.”
