Abstract:  Oral mucosal immunotherapy is a novel method of delivering allergenic extracts to the tolerogenic oropharyngeal mucosa using a compounded toothpaste vehicle. This article describes three cases where individuals with seasonal allergic rhinitis demonstrated symptom improvement as well as decreased skin reactivity after using oral mucosal immunotherapy in a pre-seasonal and co-seasonal fashion.
