Springtime Oak Allergy-Start Treatment in January with Drops


December 20, 2016

Springtime Oak Allergy symptoms can be avoided if allergy drops are started in January, three months before the season begins, and can be safely given at home. Are you a candidate?

If you are prone to sneezing, coughing, wheezing, aching and other seasonal allergy symptoms, you are well aware that Cedar Season in Central Texas is rapidly approaching. Yet, did you know that now is also the ideal time to plan ahead if you also suffer from horrible Spring Oak Allergies?

Spring Oak Allergy Facts to Know

  • If you suffer from allergies, you should get tested now for Spring Oak. Next to cedar season, spring oak allergy is the #2 major allergy season in Central Texas.
  • Springtime is outdoor time. Spring is the season for baseball and soccer.  It’s  when the weather is pleasant and many individuals, particularly children,  spend more time outdoors. The risk for significant pollen exposure increases exponentially.
  • Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT), also known as allergy drops, can dramatically reduce the severity of oak allergy symptoms.
  • Start at home allergy drops treatment in January for Springtime Oak Allergy.  Allergy drops are started three months before the beginning of oak season and are taken at home on a daily basis from January through April. Visits to the office for shots aren’t necessary with this approach.
