Good news and bad news. These giant ragweed plants along Shoal Creek near Pease park are already 5 feet tall and look very healthy. Later in the summer they may be 12 feet tall and develop the florets (shown in the 3rd picture) containing ragweed pollen which reaches high levels in September and October. The GOOD news is that a new form of sublingual (under the tongue) immunotherapy is available and does not require allergy shots in the office. Ragwitek is an FDA approved dissolving tablet containing just the right amount of ragweed pollen to gradually reduce a person's sensitivity. Unlike "allergy drops", Ragwitek went through extensive clinical trials to determine the right dose and potential side effects. Since it is FDA approved it is generally covered by insurance. Ragwitek should be started 3 months prior to ragweed season (now) with the first dose given in a physician's office to monitor for reactions. Fortunately, serious reactions are rare and the tablets can be self administered once daily at home. In Austin the tablets are continued daily until November 1st. Though there is a very low risk of serious reaction to the tablets, it is recommended that patients have auto injectable epinephrine with them to use if needed. Studies have shown that Ragwitek significantly reduces allergy to ragweed pollen similar to allergy shots. If you are interested in Ragwitek treatment for Fall allergies, now is the time to call or come in. Dr H 512-345-7635

Here is a good web site about chronic, non allergic hives which are known as Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria or Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria. Many of our patients have had a nice response to Xolair injections given monthly. Xolair is a 'biological' originally developed for allergic asthma but approved last year for chronic hives.
