Does anyone know where is a good place to have allergy shot therapy? I live in bournemouth and my doctor says it is no longer available on the NHS, I have a severe dust mite allergy which causes asthma, rhinitus and continual streaming of the eys. I use nasonex and anti histamines as well as asthma treatment and preventivies, dust mite bedding, quarterization of the nose,etc but seems to be worse than ever now.
The vast majority of the posters here are from the US. Not sure which country you are from but we do have some from other parts of the world. Perhaps one will come along shortly and help you. Just didn't want you to think we were ignoring you.
As far as I have been able to discover oral desensitization was previouslly available in the UK but is no longer. I think it is possible through private hospitals if you are able to fork out thousands of pounds but I havn't as yet been able to find a cheaper allergy specialist that can offer this, or self administered oral tablets would be absolutely perfect!! I have shopped around for this and cant find anything (even from indian online pharmacies which seem to be able to ship almost anything anywhere)
Well, Bien, you've obviously never experienced anaphalaxis! It's not that simple.
And OP, the sublingual drops are not that available because they don't seem to work on a lot of folks. From what I hear, lots of insurance companies here in the US don't cover them either - our Medicare used to be one - assume it still is.
Some reactions with some people are faster than others. Having had an anaphalatic reaction to a penicillin shot, I can say that had I not still been at the doctor's office I doubt I would have gotten to the epi pen in time.
