How do allergy drops work?
Allergy drops, also known as sublingual immunotherapy, or SLIT, introduces low doses of the specific allergens that you are allergic to under the tongue where they’re absorbed by the body. Over time, the body will build up a tolerance to these allergens, lessening or completely eliminating the allergic reaction. The recommended course of treatment is 3-5 years for you to gain long term symptom relief.
Are allergy drops just as effective as shots?
