Unfortunately, immunotherapy does not work on every type of allergy. It is true that shots work well for common allergies such as pet dander, pollen, dust, and other pollutants found in the home. Immunotherapy is not as effective for treating food allergies. At Shea Clinic Ear Nose & Throat we offer allergy testing and immunotherapy for the most common environmental allergies.
Immunotherapy is often recommended for severe allergies or allergies not completely relieved by other treatment. This treatment involves a series of injections of increasing concentrations of purified allergen extracts, usually given over a period of a few years, on average 3 to 5. Immunotherapy helps your body become tolerant of the allergens. In time, your symptoms will get better and you may not have symptoms as often or at all.
When you lose your hearing, those around you suffer the most.
