Unlike allergy medications which only cover up your allergy symptoms, Immunotherapy cures your inhalant allergies. Unfortunately, until recent years immunotherapy had to be delivered using weekly injections. The shots work to desensitize your immune system to your allergen triggers.

At West Houston ENT and Sleep Center, we use Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT) to cure your nasal allergy symptoms – no more injections!

SLIT works the same way as shots, training your immune system to ignore the allergens it is currently reacting towards. This includes seasonal and year-round allergy sufferers. SLIT therapy has been used for decades in Europe to treat inhalant allergies and has gained wide acceptance in the U.S.

  • Daily drops of serum are placed under the tongue at home – no more daily or weekly trips to the doctor’s office for allergy shots
  • The treatment lessens allergy symptoms and decreases medication use
  • It’s safer than allergy shots, and virtually eliminates the risk of life-threatening anaphylactic reaction.

Did you know sub-lingual immunotherapy works just like allergy shots and has been shown in multiple randomized controlled clinical trials to decrease allergy symptoms, decrease allergy medication use, and improve quality of life? These effects are long-lasting, up to a decade or more!
