Sublingual immunotherapy (‘allergy drops’) may soon totally replace allergy shots. The liquid drops are placed under the tongue, and the best part is: no needles are involved. This mediLexicon article tells the story of Martin Borass, who was finally able to get a puppy at age 61 after sublingual immunotherapy treatments.
‘People who suffer from multiple allergies, like Martin, are typically very good candidates for sublingual immunotherapy,’ said allergist Dr. Robert Owen. ‘Boys and puppies are a natural combination. I'm so glad that Martin finally got his dog.’
