Immunotherapy, also known as allergy shots or allergen immunotherapy, is a treatment option for individuals with allergic rhinitis (hay fever), allergic asthma, or stinging insect allergies.

It works by gradually desensitizing the immune system to specific allergens, thereby reducing the severity of allergic reactions over time. Immunotherapy involves regular injections of allergen extracts, starting with small doses and gradually increasing to higher doses over several months.

These injections are typically administered in a healthcare provider’s office and are tailored to each patient’s specific allergens based on allergy testing results. Immunotherapy can help alleviate allergy symptoms, reduce the need for allergy medications, and improve quality of life for individuals with allergies. It is particularly beneficial for individuals who do not achieve adequate symptom relief with medications alone or who wish to address the underlying cause of their allergies.
