Allergy shots (Immunotherapy) – decreases sensitivity to allergens that cause sinus allergy symptoms through injections in the upper arms. Patients receive weekly low-dose injections, gradually building up to a maintenance dose.
Sublingual drops – another method of immunotherapy that decreases sensitivity of allergens through drops taken on a daily basis under the tongue. Most insurance plans do not cover sublingual immunotherapy so the cost is typically an out of pocket expense to the patient.
Allergy testing (skin tests) – Allergens are introduced to the skin looking for a positive reaction which is a small, raised bump over the testing site.
Prick testing – skin is pricked with a small amount of allergen via a small needle.
Intradermal testing – small amounts of antigen are injected under the skin
