What are potential side effects of low dose antigen immunotherapy (LDA/LDI)?Programs , Low-Dose Antigen Immunotherapy
A localized skin reaction is expected with low dose antigen immunotherapy (LDA/LDI) injections. Typical reactions consist of a wheal from 1-5cm in diameter, but may be up to 8cm wide. The wheal may last several days, and slight constant or intermittent redness at the injection site may last up to 3 weeks or longer. Many patients report temporary stinging during or shortly after the injection, as well as mild itching at the site of injection. Your Naturopathic Doctor will fully review potential side effects prior to beginning the injection protocol.
