Can children take allergy drops? Yes. In our clinical practice, we often use allergy drops for children because it's really hard to get kids to do a weekly allergy shot. And oftentimes parents are too busy to take their kids to the allergist's office every week.
That's why we use what's called sublingual immunotherapy. It's a method of taking the same allergy shot extracts, but dosing them so that you can take them orally. There are also sublingual tablets that are FDA approved.
In general, sublingual immunotherapy is indicated for kids five years old and older. If you'd like to learn more, we'd love to work with you. Thanks!
