Dr. Krisko offers a contemporary alternative to allergy shots. Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT), or “allergy drops,” is as safe and effective as allergy shots without the inconvenience of required weekly doctor visits or the discomfort of injections.
These allergy drops assist your body in gradually building up a tolerance to the specific triggers that cause allergic reactions, which reduces your symptoms. Most of the treatment can be done at home with quarterly evaluations by your doctor at Bambu to assess your progress.
Every three months, Dr. Krisko physician will tweak your custom formula to ensure that your body continues on the path to eliminating its allergic response.
Assessing your allergies will require a comprehensive visit with Dr. Krisko. This appointment will assess your exposure history and your symptoms, as well as recommending a method for allergy testing.
Your test results will help our doctors determine if SLIT therapy is appropriate for you and, based on those results, we will create a custom formula to treat your allergies. You will get individualized therapy for your unique set of allergic triggers and symptoms.
SLIT can help all allergic patients, including infants, young children, and adults. SLIT is effective for a number of allergic conditions:
For over 100 years, SLIT therapy has been used around the world and proven safe and effective by numerous studies. The administration and dosing levels of the allergy drops are safe enough to infants, children and adults and the World Health Organization has endorsed SLIT as a viable alternative to allergy shots.
