CONTROL YOUR ALLERGIES!
Are you tired of sneezing, wheezing, itchy eyes and nose, nasal congestion and post nasal drip? Are you sick of taking allergy tablets, eyedrops and nasal sprays? Do you not have time for the process of weekly allergy shots? Then allergy drops may be the answer for you!
Allergy drops use the same extracts as are used for allergy shots, but instead of giving them by injection, they can be taken in the comfort of your own home with a dropper. The drops are placed under the tongue on a daily basis. The purpose of the drops are to desensitize individuals to the allergic substances which are bothersome. Allergy drops can be given to treat allergies caused by dust, mold, cat, dog, tree pollen, grass pollen and ragweed pollen.
