Egg allergy is the second most common allergy in children. Yet, as with other food allergies, there have not historically been any good options for dealing with egg allergy except to simply avoid eggs altogether.
But according to Dr. Stuart Agren, founder and director of a national network of allergy clinics known as AllergyEasy, things are a-changing! Agren is part of a select group of U.S. physicians who are using under-the-tongue drops (a form of allergy immunotherapy) to reduce food allergies.
Like allergy shots, drops start with an allergy serum that helps the body build an immunity to allergens in the environment. But while shots deliver the serum into the bloodstream via the skin, sublingual drops are absorbed into the bloodstream through special cells in the mouth.
Both shots and drops have been shown to be effective in reducing environmental allergies (pollen, pet dander, etc.), but only drops have been shown to be safe and effective for food allergies as well.
Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) is not a new treatment. It has been used since the mid-1980s for pollen allergies as a safer, more user-friendly alternative to allergy shots. Several years ago, physicians began successfully using SLIT to treat food allergies. Duke University Medical Center, in particular, made prominent headlines when they used SLIT to reduce severe peanut allergies in children.
Dr. Agren said that AllergyEasy serum contains dozens of the major food allergens including eggs, wheat, milk, rice, soy and fruit. He said many people are surprised to hear that there is help for food allergies.
"Most people are just resigned that if they don't grow out of their food allergies, they will be stuck with them for life," said Dr. Agren.
