I swear by my allergy injections. Since getting on them I don't have any symptoms. A tiny shot every 2 weeks has made all the difference in the world. No antihistamine pills, no drowsiness..... My body makes its own immunity from being given the allergen to work on.
I actually take 2 shots because I have several different allergies. I had grass pollen added to the other pollens when I had problems in a particularly bad season. My second shot is for mold & mites.
The shots don't hurt. They were hurting in my little, thin, no fat shoulders and I had 2 surgeries there, so I switched location to my backside. When nobody has been around to do them for me I have done them myself in my thigh, like my grandmother used to take her insulin. Same type needle - smallest and shortest I can get - see the pharmacist. The shot is only sub-cutaneous, not deep into muscle.
