ARC Allergy Drops and Shots

Allergy symptom relief and asthma prevention

Immunotherapy treatment for allergy symptoms

Allergy treatments like allergy shots or drops can help relieve allergy symptoms by building your body’s tolerance to allergens over time. These immunotherapy treatments may also prevent the development of other related conditions like asthma. In Central Texas, this could make cedar and oak season easier on you. To find out if immunotherapy treatment is right for you, your ARC allergist will begin with a complete diagnosis, allergy testing, and then a proposed treatment plan.

How do allergy shots work?

Allergy shots strengthen your immune system and reduce your body’s reaction to triggers that cause allergy symptoms like nasal congestion, a runny nose, or red, itchy eyes, medically known as allergic rhinitis.

When you get an allergy shot, you receive a small amount of the allergen that triggers your symptoms. Over time, this lessens your symptoms when exposed to those same allergens. When started early, allergy shots may reduce the development of asthma as children grow older.

How do allergy drops work?

Allergy drops improve your immune system’s response to the allergens that cause your allergy symptoms. With this treatment, allergen extract drops are placed under the tongue for 1-2 minutes daily. Treatment can be year-round or focused on peak allergy season.

Allergy drops are an effective, safe, and convenient option if you have environmental allergies and are between the ages of 5 and 65. Your ARC allergist can conduct an evaluation, then develop an allergy drop treatment plan for you.
