Allergen-specific immunotherapy is designed to reduce allergy symptoms in the medium to long term by repeatedly exposing the person to an allergy extract over a long period of time. Research has shown it is effective for treating hay fever and year-round (perennial) allergic rhinitis. Around 50% of those treated with immunotherapy experience mild and temporary side effects. Serious side effects can occur but are very rare. Talk with your doctor to see if allergen-specific immunotherapy is right for you.
