Allergy Tip of the Day: How Do Allergy Shots Work?
Allergy shots work like a vaccine. Your body responds to the injected amounts of a particular allergen (given in gradually increasing doses) little by little, developing a resistance and tolerance to it. Allergy shots can lead to decreased, minimal or no allergy symptoms when you are again exposed to the allergen(s) in the shot.
Your allergist will determine what you are allergic to and build a recipe specifically designed to your needs.
While most people may experience a permanent reduction of their allergy symptoms, others may not respond to allergy shots.
