Primary Care Doctors Can Now Stop Eczema at the Source with AllergyEasy Drops
Doctors often prescribe ointments for eczema, but the rash may return until the underlying allergy is treated. That’s where AllergyEasy drops come in.

It’s a common cycle: A patient complains to their doctor about their itchy and painful eczema. Their doctor prescribes a topical cream. They get better — temporarily. Then the eczema returns, and they’re back to square one. But now, AllergyEasy is providing primary care physicians with a better way to stop the eczema cycle once and for all.
AllergyEasy equips primary care physicians across the country to diagnose the allergies behind eczema and treat them using sublingual immunotherapy. Sublingual immunotherapy allergy treatment involves taking antigen drops under the tongue that absorb into the bloodstream through special cells in the mouth. The drops work a lot like allergy shots — except that they’re pain-free and also safer so they can be taken in the comfort of home instead of at the doctor’s office.
The liquid droplets contain traces of the very allergens that stir up allergic symptoms. As the body is exposed to them consistently, it learns to stop overreacting to them as though they were some kind of harmful germ. When the overreaction stops, the symptoms (including eczema) stop, too — and not just temporarily.
Stuart Agren, M.D., AllergyEasy Founder, said that too many people miss the mark when it comes to treating eczema.
“The first thought is that it’s a skin issue so people slather it with topical ointments, but they never get to the heart of the problem,” said Dr. Agren. “Eczema usually has its root in allergy, so until you treat the allergy itself, the eczema is going to flare up over and over again.”
Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a dry, itchy rash that develops on the skin, particularly on the backs of the knees, creases of the elbows, hands, and feet. It is most common in children, but it can occur in adulthood.
AllergyEasy drops are prescribed by primary care physicians across the country to treat eczema and other allergic conditions.
Dr. Agren said that the AllergyEasy program can be life-altering for people with chronic eczema. “We had one young patient who developed eczema at 6 months old,” said Dr. Agren. “His mom used to wrap up his limbs and hands at night so he wouldn’t scratch himself until he bled. By the time he started on the AllergyEasy program at age 4, he had been prescribed 29 different medications and creams, but nothing worked long term. Once he started on the drops, the eczema cleared up within a few months and didn’t return.”
Because eczema tends to be more prevalent in children, parents often struggle to find lasting relief for their children. Allergy shots can hit the underlying allergy head on, but shots aren’t usually recommended for children under age 7 due to their safety risks. Drops are a welcome alternative, however, because they have been shown to be safer for pediatric patients and can bring relief to even the youngest eczema sufferers.
Sublingual allergy drops are particularly popular in Europe where roughly half of all allergy sufferers get desensitization in the form of allergy drops (rather than shots). They are quickly gaining traction in the U.S. due to their effectiveness and simplicity.
“Many of our patients simply don’t have time to go to the doctor’s office a couple of times a week for shots, so the home-administration of the allergy drops is very attractive — especially since they have been shown to work as effectively as shots,” said Dr. Agren.
