Allergy Relief And Treatments
There are various forms of the treatments which you may use for allergy relief. Still, for using some of them you will need to consult with your doctor before you start with using some of them. So, one of the effective treatment of allergy is injections with small amounts of a substance which are also allergic. This treatment is also known as immunotherapy and it works with the concept that once your immune system used substances which influence the allergy, it will no longer respond when they enter again into your body.
Still, for results with using this method for allergy relief, you will need more time. Usually, it needs for one or more years for results.
Allergy Relief Shots and Who May Get Them
Allergy relief shots should use people who very clearly have a reaction of allergy using specific types of foods or some environmental factors.
With the words of an allergist Stanley P. Galant, in Orange Country in California, allergy shots work very good and extremely at patients, especially for those who clearly have allergic symptoms. But, it should be added that allergy relief shots don’t have the same effect on all patients. Actually, patients with allergies such as house mites, molds, and animal dander do not react to this product. Still, with standardization of extracts for dust mites and car dander, it could get better preparation that may help.
When it is about immunotherapy, it should mention that you can use it, before the doctor doesn’t do a blood test or skin test for determining what exacts factors influence on causing allergy at you.
It is essential for the patient to have IgE antibodies to the allergens, for using immunotherapy. It also confirmed by John Yunginger, M.D., who is a member of FDA’s Allergenic Product Advisory Committee.
IgE is shortcuts of the immunoglobulin E. This is an antibody which immune system produces with the first time of exposing to the allergens. Next time when you are exposed to the allergen, your immune system will produce lots of IgE which will react on the allergy. That’s why it is necessary that IgE antibodies are present at the patient.
