If your child is always stuffy, snotty, and always seems like they have a cold, it might be time to get him tested and treated for allergies. So a lot of parents think their only option are anti-histamines, but there's another option called immunotherapy. And what it can do is improve your child's allergies over the long-term so they don't have to keep taking pills or sprays.


Allergy drops are type of immunotherapy and they can improve your child's allergies and asthma symptoms over the long term. And unlike shots, which require needle injection in the arm, kids do really well with allergy drops cause they can be taken from home and taken by mouth.

Children with allergies have a higher risk of developing asthma later in life. And this can really worse than a child's life. But according to numerous studies in journals, like the American Journal of Pediatrics and the American Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunity. Treating children with allergy drops, decreases both our allergy and their asthma symptoms. And what's even cooler is if they don't have asthma, it decreases the chances of them getting asthma later in life.
