Sublingual AllergyEasy Drops Provide A Simple Solution For Chronic Hives
Antihistamines and topical creams may temporarily relieve chronic hives, but sublingual immunotherapy drops from AllergyEasy can get to the heart of the problem

An isolated case of hives can be irritating with its itchy, red welts, but chronic hives can be a far more distressing matter. While pills and creams may provide a temporary solution, AllergyEasy sublingual drops are allowing many patients to leave even chronic hives behind for good.
AllergyEasy helps doctors around the country treat allergy symptoms using sublingual immunotherapy (oral allergy drops that absorb under the tongue through special cells in the mouth). Since hives are typically allergy-related, allergy immunotherapy can do more than just tame their effects. It can “teach” the body not to launch into the allergic reaction in the first place. And while allergy shots used to be the primary method of immunotherapy, sublingual immunotherapy drops are becoming increasingly popular because they can provide similar benefits without pain or hassle. One big advantage of drops is that they are safer than shots so they can be taken at home.
“One of our patients had recurring hives that lasted for months at a time,” said Dr. Agren. “The hives were maddeningly itchy and also very disfiguring, so she stopped going out in public.”
The drops stopped her hives cycles and allowed her to live normally once again.
Dr. Agren described another patient battling angioedema—a condition similar to hives but affecting deeper layers of skin, often causing profound swelling around the eyes and mouth.
“He was a successful corporate mogul who found himself having to excuse himself from board meetings because the swelling would deform his appearance and even make it hard to see,” said Dr. Agren.
The patient had visited multiple dermatologists and tried a spate of different medications with only temporary relief before starting on the sublingual drops.
“The drops were able to stop the endless cycle of angioedema,” said Dr. Agren.
When the body has a reaction to allergens in the environment, it releases chemicals such as histamine into the body that cause swelling and lead to hives, angioedema, and eczema. Sublingual allergy drops help the body develop an immunity to allergens so that it will simply ignore them rather than overreacting to them.
While many allergy shot programs only desensitize patients to a small selection of local allergens, AllergyEasy drops can treat for dozens of the country’s most prevalent allergens. Drops are also more kid-friendly than shots, and unlike shots, they have been shown to be effective in reducing food allergies which can contribute to hives.
Dr. Agren said that creams and antihistamines may be appropriate for short-term bouts of hives, but when the problem lingers or recurs, a visit to an allergist may be in order.
“When hives are allergy-related—and they usually are—they can be medicated over and over, but until the underlying allergy is addressed through immunotherapy, they will most likely keep coming back,” said Dr. Agren.
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.
