Allergy Drops (Sublingual Immunotherapy)

If the thought of getting shots routinely provokes fear and anxiety, allergy drops may be a good alternative to treat your allergies. Sandra A. Ho, MD is a board-certified allergist and immunologist offering allergy drops in Los Angeles.

What are allergy drops?

Allergy drops are comprised of extracts from common environmental allergens. The exact composition is based on your allergy testing results and are custom formulated just for you and what you are allergic to. The drops are administered under the tongue and overtime makes you less sensitive to these allergen triggers.


How are drops different than the shots?

Drops are dosed daily at home under the tongue. Shots require you to come into the office once to twice a week for months. Both work to bolster up your immune system and decrease how allergic you are to these environmental allergens. Drops have a lower risk of severe allergic reactions than the shots.


Are the drops right for me?

Children that may not tolerate shots, or adults that travel for work often who cannot come into the office may be good candidates for allergy drop treatment.
