Allergy Treatment Options
Allergy Skin TestingAllergy skin testing involves exposing skin to potential allergens and then measuring the reaction. The testing is done in the clinic and usually lasts about two hours. These tests help determine what may cause allergic reactions.
Hyposensitization (Allergy Shots)Hyposensitization, or allergy shots, is a way to decrease sensitivity to allergens, the substances that trigger allergies when patients are exposed to them. Patients receive allergy shots with increasing amounts of allergen over four to five years. The goal is to achieve long-lasting allergy relief after treatment is complete.
Rush Immunotherapy (Accelerated Immunotherapy)Rush immunotherapy, or accelerated immunotherapy, is a process that can speed up a patient’s tolerance to an allergen. Patients spend a day at the UT Health main campus and receive multiple injections. Rush immunotherapy allows patients to eliminate the build-up phase of allergy shots and reach a maintenance dose much more quickly. This typically results in a much faster reduction of allergy symptoms.
Sublingual Therapy (Allergy Drops)Sublingual immunotherapy, or allergy drops, desensitizes patients to their allergies through medication taken under the tongue in a liquid form rather than through an injection or shot, making allergy drops an excellent alternative for allergy sufferers young and old.
Allergy drops can be conveniently administered at home, which means fewer office visits. Although the Food and Drug Administration has yet to approve sublingual therapy, allergy drops have repeatedly been shown in studies to be safe and effective, have been approved by the World Health Organization, and are widely used in Europe.
