Allergy Treatment at Jefferson Surgical Clinic
Allergy shots and medications aren’t the only ways to treat your allergy symptoms. Jefferson Surgical Clinic offers Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT)—also known as allergy drops—to patients in the Roanoke, Virginia area.
This relatively new allergy treatment method improves your current symptoms and helps desensitize you to allergens over time. SLIT is a safe and effective way to modify both seasonal and year-round allergies. This method also reduces medical complications triggered by food sensitivities, bacteria, mold, pollen, eczema, allergic rhinitis and asthma.
How Sublingual Immunotherapy Works
For Sublingual Immunotherapy to work, you must regularly place a small dose of allergen extract beneath your tongue. The sublingual solution interacts with your immune system to decrease your allergic reactions and, over time, develop a tolerance against your allergies.
Compared to prescription medication, nasal sprays and allergy shots, it’s an easier, more comfortable way to manage allergies and improve your symptoms.
