Oral Challenges

An Oral Challenge Can Help You Get Over Your Allergy

An oral challenge is a procedure that's still relatively new but has proven to be very effective in helping people overcome severe allergies for good.
It's done under medical supervision, and the person is given a very small amount of the food that initiated an allergic reaction. With each increased amount, the person gets used to the allergen, and eventually is not allergic to it anymore.
