Advantages of Allergy Shots

Three major ways of treating allergies are medications, allergy shots and avoiding allergens–substances which produce allergic symptoms.

While each approach is important, there are distinct advantages to allergy shots, which, since 1911, have been used to desensitize people plagued by a variety of environmental allergies.

The major advantage of employing allergy shots is that shots actually reduce or eliminate the allergy. This is not true with medications, which only treat the symptoms.
