Allergy Shots (Subcutaneous Immunotherapy or SCIT)
Allergy shots or subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT) have been the gold standard in allergy immunotherapy for quite a while since their development over 100 years ago. Allergy shots are highly effective for allergic conditions of the nose and eyes. They are indicated for concerns like asthma and insect stings. Mainly, allergy shots can be effective for common environmental problems like tree, grass, and weed allergies, as well as inside-the-home concerns like mold, dust, and dander. Allergy shots can help with allergic asthma and reduce the need for medications in the future.
