To manage our body from allergy is include avoiding what you’re allergic to, such as not eating a food you have a known problem with, avoiding pets, etc. Many allergens are unavoidable due to the widespread nature of dust, molds, pollens, weeds, and various food elements in packaged and processed foods.

Sublingual Immunotherapy or sublingual allergy treatment is method of allergy treatment that uses an allergen solution given under the tongue, which can reduces the sensitivity to allergens. Sublingual allergy treatment seems to be effective in the treatment of allergic rhinitis and to an allergic asthma.

Basically sublingual allergy treatment is made for the underlying allergic sensitivity. Allergic symptoms improve as the allergic sensitivity improves. Sublingual allergy treatment is capable of modifying the progress of allergic which begin with allergic food sensitivities in children and adults. Sublingual allergy treatment by the oral route (swallowed and not kept under the tongue for any period of time), causes too many gastrointestinal side effects (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea), and therefore is not used.

Sublingual allergy treatment known as “allergy drops,” and it is an alternative treatment for allergy shots. It is taken as drops or tablets which is placed under the tongue 3 or more times/week, contain a special allergen which interacts with the immune system to decrease allergic sensitivity.

Sublingual allergy treatment takes advantage of each humans’ body ability to develop the immune tolerance to non-antigen such as those in foods and in bacteria.

Nowadays, Sublingual allergy treatment is given through allergy injections for inhalation allergies. Sublingual allergy treatment (allergy drops and tablets) is given through inhalation allergies and foods. Like injection therapy, sublingual allergy treatment directly changes the body’s ability to react with allergens. Following successful treatment, allergy symptoms are less apparent or at least less problematic.

Because of the safety of sublingual allergy tretament, people generally treat themselves at home, and are followed in the clinic at close intervals to monitor response to treatment.
