Treating Your Spring Allergies at Urgentology Care
Spring is just around the corner here in Texas, which means new flowers, blooming trees, and allergy symptoms. Now more than ever, it’s important to reduce the chance of an allergy flare-up as much as you’re able to, so you can eliminate the possibility of other respiratory illnesses.
Here’s how our team at Urgentology Care can help.
Allergies are an immune response, and this means the best treatment for them is immunotherapy. Allergy shots are one of the most widely-used treatments for allergies, as they don’t just reduce your symptoms — they train your immune system to have less of a reaction to an allergen over time.
You can think of allergy shots like a vaccine that triggers your body’s immune response to fight allergies naturally. By lowering your sensitivity to allergens, shots often lead to lasting relief from spring allergy symptoms even after you stop treatment.
At Urgentology Care, we offer allergy shots during in-person visits to the clinic. Shots are given to patients according to individual need, meaning some patients may need shots once a week, others once a month. Our team will help find the treatment plan that works best for you.
Allergy drops are a form of sublingual immunotherapy or immunotherapy that is given orally. Allergy drops can be given in the form of a prescribed tablet or drop taken at home. They do not require administration in the clinic, but you will need to visit our team to receive a script for this treatment so we can diagnose your allergies and form the right treatment plan.
As soon as we identify the source of your allergies, we’ll prepare an allergy extract in a drop form. Some patients take allergy drops only throughout the spring when their symptoms are at an all-time high, while others may feel they need them for relief year-round.
