Allergy Drops Offer an Alternative to Allergy Shots

Seasonal allergies affect thousands in Central Texas year-round. They are caused by small particles of dust, pollen, mold, or other allergens entering your body as you breathe. Dr. Kelly H. SimpsonAllergy and Asthma physician at ARC Medical Plaza Specialty and ARC Far West Medical Tower, recently discussed using allergy drops as a solution to environmental allergies.

“Allergy drops are a type of immunotherapy that builds the body’s tolerance to an allergen and reduces the symptoms they cause,” says Dr. Simpson in this recent podcast of the ARC Healthcare Minute. 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.”
