Why suffer if you don't have to?? And yes, your immune system does take a beating - or it's more like the immune system is the beat"er". Having uncontrolled allergies can cause havoc on the system such as ours (Uc'ers). It gets riled up and goes on the rampage.
It's best to get it under control via antihistamines, natural or prescription/otc, or allergy injections. Btw, my daughter who has severe allergies, did two years of allergy injections and now she doesn't suffer as bad as before. She chose to stop them because she had to go to the drs office to receive her injections due to possible reactions.
