At least one out of every five Americans has some type of allergic disease. Are you one of them?
A simple allergy solution—just a few drops under the tongue.
Tired of relying on pills, inhalers or nasal sprays? No time for allergy shots at the doctor’s office? Now you may find fast, lasting relief with under-the-tongue allergy drops that can be taken in the comfort of home.
How do oral drops work?
Oral drops are a type of immunotherapy. Immunotherapy is the only treatment proven to alter the underlying allergic disease instead of just its symptoms. Other treatments such as pills provide only short-term relief. When patients stop taking them, the symptoms return.
Immunotherapy starts with a serum that can be delivered through shots or, more conveniently, through under-the-tongue drops. The serum contains extracts of common allergens found in nature (pollens, pet dander, etc.) In time, the serum can desensitize the body to allergens so that it stops overreacting to the environment in ways that lead to troubling symptoms.
What causes allergies?
Allergies result from a dysfunction of the immune system. When the body encounters harmless antigens in the environment (pollen, mold, pet dander, etc.), it should simply ignore them but sometimes, the immune system mistakenly perceives the antigens as threats and overreacts in ways that lead to troubling symptoms.
The most common symptoms include:
- Watery eyes
- Runny or congested nose
- Chronic sinus infection
- Itchy eyes
- Frequent ear infections
But the list doesn’t stop there. Below are lesser-known symptoms that can indicate allergic disease.
- Skin problems including eczema and hives
- Respiratory effects including endless colds, chronic cough, and recurrent bronchitis
- Conjunctivitis (allergic eye irritation)
- Nasal polyps
- Muscle and joint pain
- Mental effects such as confusion, slow thinking, depression, and forgetfulness
