Hyposensitization

Hyposensitization

Hyposensitization is an effective form of treatment for allergic rhinitis, eye symptoms and asthma. Altogether 80% of patients get significant relief for their pollen allergy from the treatment.

The purpose of the treatment is to increase the patient’s tolerance of the allergen in question.

Hyposensitization can be implemented as injections or, in select cases, by tablets (timothy – hay fever) or oral solution (birch). In traditional hyposensitization by injections, the hyposensitization extract is injected under the skin at regular intervals according to an individual schedule. The treatment takes three years altogether.

In both cases, treatment and planning are carried out by an allergist or paediatrician who is acquainted with allergy treatments.
