Dealing with allergies requires you to:
avoid exposure to the allergy causing substance, something not always possible
take medicines that block the allergic reaction
- use allergy vaccines, oral or injected>
Clinical trials have proved the efficacy of SLIT against allergic varieties of asthma and rhinitis caused by plant pollen, dust mites, cat skin flakes, grass and ragweed. SLIT holds promise against mild atopic dermatitis or eczema in children, food allergies, and red-itchy eyes due to plant pollen.
According to the World Allergy Organization (WAO), SLIT is an accepted treatment in Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia. Although SLIT is gaining popularity in the United States, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is yet to approve it.
Drops or tablets for SLIT can be administered anywhere. However, mild side effects such as mouth and stomach problems make it necessary to consult an allergist who eliminates these effects with dose adjustments.
