Kick Seasonal Allergies Before They Kick You

Allergy Sufferers, There Is No Need to Continue the Pain; Using Fast-Acting Allergy Shots, Brian Rotskoff, MD Has a Way to Get Rid of Your Allergies for Good

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/14 -- Day by day, it seems that Spring is starting to make its way into our backyards. While this is a time of jubilation for most of us who are ready to get rid of winter, there are some that are dreading Spring, mainly the allergens of Spring. If you are one of the many who suffer from seasonal allergies, now is the time to take action with cluster immunotherapy.

"I am a strong believer in immunotherapy for the treatment of allergies," says Chicago allergist Brian Rotskoff, MD. "There's no reason to suffer through chronic allergies. Allergy shots essentially cure allergies, rather than masking symptoms."

Imagine not having to worry about the misery of allergies -- life without the sneezing, the runny nose, the itchy, watery eyes, or without having to stock up on over-the-counter allergy medications and tissues every time you make it to the pharmacy. Instead, immunotherapy transitions patients from allergy management to symptom-free allergy immunity.

What is cluster immunotherapy?
Allergy shots and immunotherapy reduce the long-term effects of seasonal allergies, hay fever, childhood allergies, asthma, and insect allergies. The process takes place over an extended period of time, but with the proper commitment will show results. For adults that are looking for convenient, faster results, Dr. Rotskoff offers an accelerated regimen, known as cluster immunotherapy.

Immunotherapy is the practice of repeating exposure to allergens over time in order to build a tolerance to those allergy triggers. Most often, exposure to the allergen takes the form of allergy shots. Traditional immunotherapy takes place in the allergist's office once a week over an extended period of time. The key to this therapy is regulated exposure to the allergen and the gradual tolerance that is built in that person.

"Most of my patients have hectic schedules that don't permit weekly visits over an extended period of time to my office," explains Dr. Rotskoff. "This is the reason I offer cluster immunotherapy -- it's a great fit for a lot of my patients. Busy schedules shouldn't rule out a person's chance to change their allergy patterns."

Finding allergy relief
During cluster immunotherapy a patient receives allergy shots in a series of clustered injections. These clusters occur throughout the course of two 2-hour long sessions one or two times a week. These concentrated sessions help patients achieve allergy immunity up to three times faster than the traditional treatment cycle.

"My goal is for patients to no longer suffer with allergies," says Dr. Rotskoff. "To be able to live freely, without having to worry about visiting a friend with a cat or dreading the change of seasons. Allergies should not rule your life."

If you are tired of suffering from allergies and you think that cluster immunotherapy is for you, call Dr. Rotskoff at the Clarity Allergy Center today, 773-877-3500.
