What are allergy drops?
One of the simplest and most effective ways to build resistance against allergies, instead of just treating the symptoms, is with allergy drops, sometimes referred to as SLIT. SLIT stands for sublingual immunotherapy. This is a method of gradually building a patient’s resistant to their allergen to help treat it.
How long do sublingual immunotherapy allergy drops take to work?
Most patients who use these drops will find their resistance to the allergy building over the course of several months. However, to get the optimum benefit from treatment, patients may need to evaluate their condition over the course of three years. While this is not an instant solution, it can be used in conjunction with allergy medications to manage symptoms as the body builds its immunity.
