What is Allergen Specific Immunotherapy
Allergen Specific Immunotherapy (otherwise called allergy shots) is a viable treatment utilized by allergists and immunologists for regular unfavorably susceptible conditions, especially allergy rhinitis/conjunctivitis, allergic asthma and stinging bug-biting sensitivity. The essential targets of allergen-specific immunotherapy are to diminish the indications activated by allergens and it stops the repeat of the sickness in the long haul. Presently, it is the main recognized disease-modifying intervention for allergic disease. It is a form of long-term treatment that decreases symptoms for many people with allergic rhinitis, allergic asthma, conjunctivitis (eye allergy) or stinging insect allergy. Allergy shots decrease sensitivity to allergens and often lead to lasting relief of allergy symptoms even after treatment is stopped.

How Allergen Specific Immunotherapy works
Allergen Specific Immunotherapy or Allergy shots does as a vaccine, the human body starts responding on the injected amount of a particular allergen because either body develops immunity or tolerance to an allergen.

There are two phases:-

• Built up phase: - This involves receiving injections containing increasing amounts every next time. Effect and length of this phase depend upon how often injections a patient is receiving but generally treatment take place from three to six months.
• Maintenance Phase: - This begins one the effective dose reaches in the body; the effective maintenance dose depends on your level of allergen sensitivity and body’s response to the build-up phase. Two sessions of treatment may take longer time, generally two to four weeks. An allergist or immunologist can help to decide which duration suits to a patient.
 
Results of Allergen Specific Immunotherapy:-
Patients feel decreased symptoms during the build-up phase and generally, it takes 12 months on a build-up dose to notice an improvement. If it remains successful than it follows maintenance treatment goes for three to five years.
