Allergy Check-Ups in Farmington, NM
Are you tired of living with constant sneezing, coughing, itching, and watery eyes? Then it is time to schedule allergy check-ups in Farmington, NM, at Pinon Hills Ear, Nose, Throat, & Allergy Specialists. Rather than masking your symptoms with medications, we use allergy treatments, including injections, to reduce or even eliminate the allergic reactions to your triggers. These injections are a long-term treatment that has helped countless people live their lives free of troublesome allergy issues and symptoms.
The process begins with an allergy check-up, which allows us to confirm that allergies are the cause of your issues. This also allows us to pinpoint which allergen is triggering the reaction in your body. A skin or blood test may then be conducted, which may involve introducing you to the suspected allergen and watching for a reaction. Based on this check-up and your medical history, our doctors will determine whether injections are an appropriate allergy treatment for you.
The Allergy Injection Process
The science of allergy injections is simple. You are exposed to small amounts of your allergen over a set amount of time to help desensitize your body to them. This helps to prevent overblown allergic reactions in the future. While injections are not an instant solution, they can be highly successful with determination and diligence.
Here is what you can expect from your allergy injection treatment. First, we will give injections in the upper arm 1-3 times a week for 3-6 months. The slow buildup of these shots helps strengthen your immunity to the allergen. Once you have completed your injection series, you will continue to visit the clinic once a month for 3-5 years. By the end of that period, your body’s tolerance is significantly increased, and your symptoms should lessen or even disappear.
