Children Allergies - New Information

LOW DOSE ALLERGEN (LDA)

This treatment involves the intradermal injection of very low doses of allergens with the use of an enzyme called Beta Glucuronidase. Depending on the patients problem there are treatments available for pollens, molds, dust mites, cat, dog, horse, foods, food additives and chemicals.

The intradermal injections are given initially every two months. Depending on the individual patient's response, treatment can be decreased to every three to four months. There have been no reported serious side effects. We have been very happy with patients who have used this treatment for a number of allergic conditions including nasal allergies, atopic dermatitis, asthma, allergic conjunctivitis and sinus headaches. Patients with more unusual allergy problems may respond to this therapy.
