Yes. One of the techniques used to help children manage or even outgrow allergies is called “immunotherapy,” and this is one of our specialties at Premier Allergy & Asthma. Immunotherapy is basically a clinical version of exposing the process mentioned above, where your child gets used to an allergen over time.
In immunotherapy, one of our allergists will inject your child with a very small, controlled dose of an allergen. By repeating this process over the years, your child’s immune system can be “taught” to handle the allergen properly. This reduces allergy symptoms, and can even help your child outgrow their allergies completely.
