Allergy immunotherapy is a type of therapy that reduces allergy symptoms by decreasing your sensitivity to specific allergens. It provides a safe and cost-effective means of helping you find relief from your allergy physician, whether they are seasonal or year round.
Do allergy shots work?
Allergy shots may be beneficial for allergy sufferers of all ages, though you should always consult your allergist to ensure that they will not interfere with other health concerns that you may have.

Length of treatment varies from person to person with the maintenance phase typically lasting anywhere from three to five years.
