Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy

Allergy injections, or immunotherapy, help the body become more immune to specific allergens, such as pollen, mold spores, animal dander, grass, or other triggers that elicit allergic reactions in the nose, eyes, or lungs. They may benefit patients with eczema, allergic rhinitis, insect bite sensitivity, or asthma worsened by allergies.

Injections are typically given in a patients upper arm, in a doctors office, 1-3 times per week for the first few months, to help lessen a patients symptoms over time. They often end in lasting relief even after treatment has ended.
