Allergen immunotherapy (IT) involves the injection of increasing doses of allergens under the skin in the back of the arm, and when performed according to specific guidelines, it can be an exceptionally effective allergy treatment. When you receive allergen immunotherapy to reduce your allergy symptoms, it works in about 80% of patients and in these patients can result in allergy relief. This is a different kind of allergy treatment option that is designed to be a curative type of therapy that works continually even when treatment is stopped.
At Arcadia Allergy & Asthma, we do not offer allergy drops as a type of treatment as it is not an FDA approved allergy treatment and there is little no evidence to suggest that it is more effective than placebo at treating allergic conditions. However, these are ongoing studies, and Arcadia Allergy & Asthma looks to provide the most effective allergen immunotherapy in Arcadia and throughout the Phoenix Valley.
