Management Options for Allergies:

Avoid the allergen(s) – While this may work in some situations, some substances such as pollen are hard to avoid

Treat the symptoms – Medication can provide you a measure of relief from your allergy symptoms, but it does nothing to address the root of the problem

Use immunotherapy – Alter the body’s reaction to the allergen(s). To desensitize your immune system’s reaction to the effect of the offending allergen is the only treatment method known to cure your allergy

With immunotherapy:

  • You may use fewer sick days at work.
  • Living your life as you want to becomes easier.
  • Other diseases such as asthma and sinusitis may be better controlled.
  • You may use fewer medications.
