If you are dealing with environmental allergies, you know firsthand what a hassle it can be. You just want to walk outside, breathe in the air and feel good like the vast majority of other people. Instead, certain factors in the environment negatively affect you to the point that you can no longer function normally. Rather than enjoying outdoor activities with the rest of your friends, you are forced to stay inside and recover from your symptoms. If this sounds like your situation, it is in your best interest to learn as much as you can about lymph node injections.
The purpose of lymph node injections is to build up your tolerance to the allergen. During the treatment, the allergen is injected directly into the lymph nodes in a safe and controlled way under the supervision of our qualified medical professionals. In time, this should lead to a greater tolerance to the allergen. Once your tolerance is built up to a certain level, you may no longer experience symptoms.
Lymph node injections can be helpful for a variety of environmental allergies, such as mold, pollen, dust mites, pet dander and even cigarette smoke. The treatments are performed in the comfort of our office without the need for an extended recovery time. The injections are convenient for people with busy schedules and lifestyles, as they only require a relatively short amount of time in our office.
Are you wondering if lymph node injections can work for you? The only way to know for sure is to consult with our team of experts. During a consultation at our office, we can evaluate your situation and review your health and medical history. From there, you may learn more about the treatment and how it can be used in your particular case. It is important to understand that treatment for environmental allergies is not one-size-fits-all. As such, results vary from patient to patient.
