However, this vaccine contains egg protein and it is currently suggested that it not be used on children with egg allergy. Furthermore, North American guidelines recommend against its use in children with asthma. Thus, asthmatic or egg allergic children receive a traditional flu shot

    SLIT is an alternative method of allergen desensitization in the management of atopic conditions such as asthma and allergic rhinitis, which does not involve a series of injections. The protocol for SLIT involves an allergist determining a patient’s sensitizing allergens, typically by skin testing, followed by small doses of these allergens placed under the tongue daily in the form of tablets or drops. This causes a decrease in the body’s natural production of specific allergic antibody, called IgE.
