Airborne Allergy Testing & Treatments | Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center
Our advanced seasonal allergy treatment is region specific so it tests each patient on pollens, mold, trees, and grasses that are present in the area where they live. Instead of recommending over-the-counter and prescription medications, we encourage patients to get to the root of the problem rather than masking the problem by only treating symptoms associated with their triggers.
Common Symptoms of Seasonal Allergies:
- Watery eyes
- Chronic sinus inflammation
- Foggy thinking
- Chest congestion
These symptoms can be caused environmental allergies. In areas, such as Texas, allergies are a year round ongoing struggle for patients to cope with but are now easier to test and treat.
What to Expect *
Allergy Drops – Previously patients only had the option of doing allergy shots to build up their immunity to environmental allergens. Now you can treat the cause of your allergies safely and effectively – without shots. We are one of the few practices that offers our patients allergy immunotherapy that you can take home. It’s called sublingual immunotherapy – or allergy drops.
Allergy drops work similar to allergy shots. They slowly desensitize you to the substance that causes your allergic reactions over the course of a year or two. Not only are allergy drops a more convenient seasonal allergy treatment method, research also shows they are safe and effective for all ages and patients often notice improvement relatively quickly. Most patients receiving allergy drops need only a few clinic visits the first year, and once every 6-12 months thereafter until visits are no longer needed which translates to lower cost and fewer office visits.
“After suffering for years with my allergies I finally decided to do something about it. I never wanted to go through getting shots for my allergies, so when I saw Dr. Shel on TV one day saying that she can treat allergies with drops, I knew I had to go see her. Everyone at Dr. Shel’s was so great and the results I’ve had so far are amazing and I recommend Dr. Shel to everyone! Thank you Dr. Shel!!!” ~ Teri S.*
