Desensitisation

Many of the patients we see at the LAC have been trying for some time to avoid their allergic triggers. Even after a myriad of tablets, eye-drops and nasal sprays, their debilitating symptoms can still persist, disrupting academic, professional and even sporting performance. Professional cyclists being slowed down by their pollen allergy or race horse jockeys allergic to their mounts are not uncommon situations. However, for those involved in professional sport, there are many restrictions on a wide range of oral and injectable steroids so it might be useful to seek advice on an immunological approach to  treating severe or intractable allergic conditions.

For example, de-sensitisation (also known as allergen immunotherapy) can be highly effective and is readily available to treat most airborne and animal allergens, The Consultants at the LAC will be able to assess your suitability for allergen immunotherapy.
