Q: My mom told me about an allergy medicine that you put under your tongue or upper lip.

My mom said that there is an area map and you have to order based on the area you live in,for example they lived in California,which was area 7. She can remember a lot about the medicine except for the name?

That sounds like it might be either a homeopathic allergy medicine or allergy drops. Some studies have shown that both of those can be effective, but it hasn't been absolutely proven to work with all kinds of allergies.

 

I'd encourage you to consult with your doctor to discuss your options for treatment.

 

Best,
