Allergy Check-Ups & Injections in Farmington, NM
Get relief from sneezing, itching, watery eyes, and more by visiting Pinon Hills Ear, Nose, Throat & Allergy Specialists. Rather than masking your symptoms with medications, we use allergy injections to reduce or even eliminate allergic reactions to your triggers. These injections are a long-term treatment that has helped countless people live their lives free of troublesome allergy symptoms.
The process begins with our allergy check-ups in Farmington, NM. We must confirm that allergies are the cause of your issues and pinpoint which allergen is triggering a reaction. Depending on your case, we may conduct a blood or skin test, which may involve scratching a tiny sample of the suspected allergen onto your skin and watching for a reaction. Based on your medical history and results, our doctors will determine whether injections are an appropriate allergy treatment for you.
How Allergy Injections Work
The science behind allergy injections is relatively simple: they expose you to small amounts of your allergen to desensitize your body over time, preventing overblown allergic reactions in the future. While injections are not an instant solution, they can be highly successful with diligence and determination.
Here is what to expect from your allergy treatment. We give injections in the upper arm 1-3 times a week for 3-6 months. The slow buildup helps strengthen your immunity to the allergen. Once you complete 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 greatly increased, and your symptoms may lessen or disappear.
