What allergies can be treated with immunotherapy?
Allergies are a number of conditions and medical symptoms caused by increased hypersensitivity of the immune system in response to typically harmless substances in the environment.
Immunotherapy is a preventive treatment for allergic reactions to substances such as:
- Dust mite allergies
- Insect venom allergies
- Animal hair allergies
- Pollen allergies
- Latex allergies
- Mold allergies
How does this treatment work?
Immunotherapy for allergies works by giving a person with a certain type of allergy small doses of the allergen over a period of time. The dosage is gradually increased as time goes on and the patient’s immune system starts to get used to the allergen.
It should be noted that this treatment doesn’t cure the allergy but desensitizes it, meaning it trains the body to accept the substance without causing an allergic reaction.
Here are some common immunotherapy treatments:
- Allergy shots
- Sublingual immunotherapy
- Oral immunotherapy (for food allergies)
