Basics of Sublingual Immunotherapy
Sublingual immunotherapy works by introducing small amounts of the antigens, or allergens, into your system over time. By gradually exposing your body to measured amounts of a specific allergen, it helps your body build immunity against allergy triggers. Year-round treatment using sublingual immunotherapy provides allergy desensitization, meaning your allergies are actually eliminated. And taking allergy drops as a pre-seasonal treatment for tree, grass or weed pollens will help prepare you in advance of the coming season and may also shorten the length of immunotherapy treatment time needed for those using allergy drops for year-round allergies.
