Allergy Immunotherapy Treatment Clinic at CMC Hospital Dubai

Our US Board Certified Immunology Allergy expert, Dr Fares, at Clemenceau Medical Center Hospital has over 20 years experience in the treatment of a wide spectrum of allergy conditions. Allergies are a common condition that occurs when the immune system mistakenly identifies a harmless substance as a threat and reacts against it. This reaction can cause a variety of symptoms, such as sneezing, itching, runny nose, and congestion.

Immunotherapy, sometimes referred to as ‘allergy shots’, is a type of treatment that can help desensitize the immune system to allergens. This treatment involves gradually exposing the patient to increasing amounts of the allergen over time. As the body becomes accustomed to the allergen, the immune system’s reaction becomes less severe.

Types of Immunotherapy for Allergies

There are three main types of immunotherapy for allergies:

  1. Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT): This involves placing drops of a liquid containing the allergen under the tongue. SLIT is typically done at home once a day.
  2. Sublingual immunotherapy tablet.
  3. Subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT): This involves injecting a solution containing the allergen under the skin. SCIT is typically done by a doctor’s office once every few weeks.
  4. Biological Immunological Allergy therapy: This involves using monoclonal antibody injections for several different severe allergic or atopic conditions.

FAQ's

Allergy Immunotherapy treatment can cause some side effects such as, redness, swelling, or pain at the injection site. This is a common side effect of Subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT). Less common side effects of Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) and SCIT include Itching, hives, or rash.

Immunotherapy is a good option for people who: 1. Have moderate to severe allergy symptoms. 2. Have allergies to a small number of allergens. 3. Are able to commit to long-term treatment.

Immunotherapy is a long-term treatment, and it can take several years to see the full effects of treatment. However, many people start to experience relief from their allergy symptoms within the first few months of treatment.
