Find Relief at Our Allergy and Sinus Center for Biloxi and Gulfport Patients
One of the best ways to get rid of allergies permanently is through a technique called immunotherapy, more commonly known as "allergy shots". With each allergy shot, the allergist administers a specific mix of allergens to the skin of the patient, based on the results of their allergy test. The aim of this technique is to improve the patient’s immunological tolerance to allergens that are difficult to avoid, such as pollen or animal dander. During the course of allergy shot treatment, the doctor may also use some types of medication to desensitize the patient to specific allergens.
The ultimate goal is to slowly increase your body's tolerance levels of your specific allergens by gradual and consistent exposure. That way, you are much more tolerant, or even totally unphased by your allergens in the future.
