Allergy Immunotherapy from a Board-Certified ENT Specialist in Wesley Chapel, FL
Allergy immunotherapy, also known as sublingual immunotherapy (allergy drops), or subcutaneous immunotherapy (allergy shots) can provide much-needed relief to individuals with environmental allergies. If you’re among this group, turn to Dr. Brett Scotch and the team at Scotch Institute of Ear Nose & Throat in Wesley Chapel, Florida. We specialize in helping patients with uncomfortable allergy symptoms breathe, sleep, hear, and live…better.
As our patient, your symptoms and concerns will be carefully reviewed by our physicians – board-certified otolaryngologists with extensive allergy training – as well as a team of experienced allergy nurses that practice right here in our Wesley Chapel, FL, center. Once the allergens that trigger your symptoms have been identified (painless and brief allergy testing may be recommended), our doctors will determine if you could benefit from allergy immunotherapy. Here’s how this innovative treatment works for allergy drops:
- Small drops will be custom-formulated in our office to address the patient’s specific allergen(s).
- The patient will take an allergy drop at home each day by simply using a dropper to place one to three drops under the tongue, depending on the phase of treatment.
- Over time, the patient’s immune system will become desensitized and tolerance for the allergen(s) will build.
- The patient can experience ultimate relief of allergy symptoms within approximately three years.
In the event that this allergy immunotherapy is not appropriate for you, our physicians will outline other treatment options that can deliver the relief you need, such as allergy shots.
