Allergen Immunotherapy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are often closely linked, and the treatment of allergies can have a positive impact on asthma symptoms. Allergic asthma is a common type of asthma triggered by exposure to allergens such as


  • pollen

  • dust mites

  • Animal dander


Allergen immunotherapy, is a medical treatment designed to reduce the symptoms of allergies, which in turn, can improve asthma control.


You may require multiple treatments if you have more than one significant allergen. It is given via injections (subcutaneous) or a tablet, spray or drop under the tongue (sublingual)
