Allergy Drop Therapy:
Our Allergy Doctor-Recommended Treatment
What are Allergy Drops?
Unlike most allergy doctors, who provide medication to mask your symptoms, Dr. G’s goal is to help you and your family build immunity to the allergen. Allergy drops essentially act as exposure therapy, allowing your body to become used to the allergen, safely and gradually.
Because everyone experiences
How Do Dr. G’s Allergy Drops Work?
At your first visit for allergy drops, Dr. G will conduct a simple blood test to determine which allergies need to be treated. Then, he’ll work with you to identify the combination of drops to best help your body build immunity.
Allergy drop treatment introduces small, safe amounts of your allergen as drops that you place under your tongue. This slow introduction causes your immune system to recognize the allergen it previously deemed as threatening and quell a response before any allergic symptoms occur.
The dosage increases throughout your treatment until you reach a “maintenance level” where you can better tolerate the allergen. Over time, this can reverse the irritating, and at times painful, effects of allergies on the body: patients usually notice an improvement in symptoms after just a few months!
Benefits of Allergy Drops
Allergy drops can be self-administered at home, making them a simple-to-use and pain less solution, unlike allergy shots that other allergy doctors offer.
Customized to You
There are a range of allergens that Dr. G can mix drops for, including pet dander, dust mites, molds, and pollen. This allows for a treatment plan perfectly suited to your specific allergens.
Dr. G is an experienced allergy specialist, and many of his patients express that their allergy symptoms have improved or even subsided with ongoing allergy drop treatment.
At Home Treatment
Dr. G’s allergy drops are sent directly to your home, allowing them to fit easily into almost any lifestyle. — no need to come into the office except for checkups! You can travel with them, and your kids can even take them to camp!
Are You A Candidate for Allergy Drops?
Because allergy drops can be self-administered from your home and use miniscule doses of allergens, they are a safe and non-invasive option for nearly anyone looking to treat their symptoms, including children!
Dr. Goldfarb makes sure that your drop therapy is individualized to your specific needs and that your dosage is carefully adjusted as a direct result of your ongoing communication. Anyone who is interested in alleviating their symptoms from common allergens should reach out to Dr. Goldfarb in Solon, OH.
Pediatric Allergy Treatment
As a pediatrician, Dr. G knows that while it’s common for kids to have allergies, the specific symptoms they experience as a result are unique to each child. In order to tailor your child’s care, Dr. G will first conduct a blood test to determine which allergens affect them. From there, Dr. G will help you set a course of action for allergy drop treatment that fits conveniently into your family’s lifestyle.
Allergy drops are extremely safe and comfortable for kids, as they are a noninvasive pediatric allergy treatment that can be taken from the comfort of your family’s home: that means fewer appointments to and from the doctor for both you and your children — and no scary shots!
Allergy Drop FAQ
Dr. Goldfarb is proud to be one of the leading allergy doctors in the greater Cleveland area. His dedication to his patients is evident in every interaction, and Dr. G is always happy to answer any questions you may have regarding allergy treatment.
WHY ARE ALLERGY DROPS BETTER THAN ALLERGY SHOTS?
Because allergy shot injections must be administered in a doctor’s office, they are more invasive and less convenient than Dr. G’s allergy drop therapy.
As a result, allergy shots only have a 35% completion rate compared to the 75% completion rate of allergy drops. Also, by their very nature, allergy shots can be painful, while allergy drop therapy is said to be smooth and comfortable for nearly all patients!
Can Allergy Drops Help Asthma?
While allergies are not the same thing as asthma, they are often linked together. And, it’s true that allergies can exacerbate the coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath caused by asthma. So, while allergy drops won’t completely resolve asthma, they may help make it easier to live with!
Are Allergy Drops Safe for Kids?
Allergy drops are very safe for children! Because they are pain-free, carefully dosed, and non-invasive compared to allergy shots and other medications, kids can receive allergy drop therapy from their own home with their parents.
