Do You Suffer From Seasonal Allergies?

Some allergies are more difficult to live with than others. If you are allergic to grass, trees, or weeds, you may not be able to go outside during the pollen season without taking allergy medications. You might avoid activities you enjoy, simply because you can’t go outside without getting a runny nose or itchy eyes. If you suffer from seasonal or environmental allergies that impact your quality of life, allergy shots could be a long-term solution for you. Allergy shots in Pasadena may be a treatment option for you if you are allergic to one or more of the following substances:

  • Pollen
  • Pet dander
  • Dust
  • Mold
  • Insect venom

What Do Allergy Shots Do?

Allergy shots contain a tiny amount of a substance you’re allergic to, such as dust or pollen. This amount will be sufficient to cause an immune response, but not enough to produce a full allergic reaction. An allergic reaction is your immune system’s attempt to protect you from a foreign substance that it considers to be a threat. When you get your allergy shots, your immune system gradually gets used to being exposed to the allergen. In time, it learns how to tolerate it without producing an allergic reaction.

Decrease Your Symptoms While Preventing New Allergies

When administered properly, allergy shots are very effective in treating chronic allergies. In addition to treating seasonal and environmental allergies, they have also been shown to prevent new allergies from developing. With allergy shots, you don’t merely treat your symptoms. You address their cause and strengthen your immune system. Other benefits include:

  • You can treat multiple allergies at once.
  • When your immune system has built up a tolerance to an allergen, you no longer need to avoid it in your daily life. This gives you freedom to participate in the activities of your choice.
  • They can help decrease your use of oral medications.
  • Allergy shots are also effective in treating allergic asthma. 
  • While up-front costs are higher, long-term costs are lower.

How Often Will I Need to Get Allergy Shots?

At Texas ENT Specialists, your treatment plan will be personalized to suit your individual circumstances and needs. Depending on your treatment plan, you will likely begin your treatment with one or two shots per week. This will continue for a few months, after which the frequency of your shots will decrease until you are getting about one shot per month. You will probably continue getting monthly shots for about 3-5 years. Again, this will depend on your unique circumstances and your individualized treatment plan.
