In brief: Desensitization
I assume you are referring to oral immunotherapy(oit) drops which are still not fda approved for use in this country and still in clinical trial phase but used extensively in europe.
Oit works much like immunotherapy injections to desensitize a person over time to allergens which they have been shown to be allergic and which cause symptoms that are clinically relevant.
