Hi, I've had severe asthma and allergies since I was 7 yo and I'm 30 now! I have been taught, both in Microbiology, and by a well known international doc, that allergy shots aren't very good, though I'm not telling ANYONE not to!! The whole thing is, you are injecting yourselves with the very same thing that makes you sick to begin with, that is part of the problem!! So many people that I knew over the years have gotten them and have only made them more sick. But remember to, this is one person's opinion! Just be careful what you're putting into your bodies! I have not had ONE allergy shot in all these years, and I'm PERFECTLY happy without them!! And I don't plan to ever get them either! And as a young child of 7, they wanted me to go on them because I was SO bad, and my parents made the best educated decision, and said no! I thank God everyday for GOOD doctors, which are more and more scarce these days!! Good luck to everyone, and I hope that you all get some relief!!
