Do allergy shots work and would it be the best option for me?


In order to become a candidate for airborne allergy shots your skin test results should correlate with your symptoms. Allergy shots or vaccines work for a majority of patients that do not respond well to medical treatment and environmental control. In some circumstances, allergy shots or vaccines are the best options. It takes understanding of your condition, dedication, time, and knowing, as well as trusting the treatment method. Allergy vaccines are also given to patients with systemic reactions to insect stings (venoms) with a high cure rate. Currently, allergy shots are not an option for food allergies.
