Immunology treatment involves injecting allergens into a patient to cause allergy symptoms. These allergens are identified by a combination a medical evaluation performed by a trained allergist / immunologist and allergy skin or allergy blood tests. Allergen levels increase with each injection until a target dose is reached. Once the target dose is reached, the time between injections can be increased and generally range from every 2 to every 4 weeks. This process aims to desensitize the immune system to specific allergens that trigger allergy symptoms.

With a broad range of allergen-heavy plants and fauna, Idaho is a prime location for allergy & immunology treatment. If you are seeking treatment for allergic reactions and want to learn more information on immunology and allergy treatment, contact the specialists at IDID today.
