For those with milk allergies, the standard advice has long been to simply avoid milk products. This can be tricky, though, since milk can be found in a wide range of foods including chocolate candies, baked goods, and even lunch meats. But thanks to AllergyEasy sublingual drops, there’s now a simple solution that can help people ingest more milk with less fear of reactions.
The AllergyEasy medical staff helps doctors around the country provide an injection-free alternative to allergy shots known as sublingual immunotherapy. Like shots, it starts with a solution that can help desensitize the body to allergens, but instead of being injected into the body, it is dispensed under the tongue where it is assimilated into the blood stream through special cells in the mouth.
Unlike shots, allergy drops have been shown to be effective with food allergies as well as pollen allergies. Additionally, the drops are safer than shots, so they can be taken at home (rather than at the doctor’s office). The have also been shown to be safe for children less than age 5—good news for the 2.5 percent of children who suffer with milk allergies.
Milk allergies can cause a variety of symptoms including hives, eczema, hay fever, wheezing, cramping, gas, nausea, and even severe anaphylaxis. But with AllergyEasy drops, the immune system may be trained to stop overreacting to milk proteins in ways that lead to these troubling symptoms.
Stuart Agren, M.D. is the founder and director of AllergyEasy and has seen the toll that food allergies can take on people lives.
“When people are trying to to dance around milk or wheat or egg allergies—or sometimes all three—it interrupts their lifestyle,” said Dr. Agren. “In kids, it can be very scary. Some food item may show up at a class party that can throw them into an allergic tailspin or even anaphylaxis.”
Dr. Agren said that many kids with milk and other food allergies are able to overcome low weight, vomiting, and stomach pain with AllergyEasy drops.
“Many of these kids have no reference point for how healthy kids live and feel,” said Dr. Agren. “It’s very rewarding to see them start eating normally without fear of repercussions from food choices.”
AllergyEasy drops can help with food allergies to more than 60 items, including dairy products, wheat, soy, rice, fruits, vegetables, and tree nuts.
AllergyEasy helps allergy doctors around the country provide sublingual immunotherapy (allergy drops) to their patients who suffer with allergies to pollen and food allergies (including dairy allergy, wheat allergy, nut allergy, fruit allergy and more.) AllergyEasy can connect patients to a doctor in their area who offers sublingual allergy treatment.
