Rush immunotherapy works much like allergy shots, the traditional treatment plan that helps allergy sufferers manage symptoms of common allergens. However, instead of 50 shots over the course of a year, doctors will administer the same dosage within 4-6 shots over the course of a day. With controlled exposure to tiny amounts of allergens, you can slowly build up a tolerance. With a shot given once every hour, you can build up that tolerance quicker. During your treatment, we will closely monitor you to ensure you don’t experience any adverse reactions. After your one-day session, there will be a follow up with additional treatments for a couple of months but, for many patients, rush immunotherapy provides a permanent cure for seasonal allergies.
