I had to have allergy shots when I was young.  I would get crazy sick and they couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me then finally pinpointed it as allergies.  I can’t remember when I stopped getting them but since I’ve gotten older I hardly ever get as sick as I did when I was a kid.  So, I guess I would say that they worth it

I’ve been getting them for about 2 years now and they definitely help me.  My husband will do them for about 2-3 years on, 2-3 years off, repeat cycle and it really helps him as well (he’s allergic to just about everything it seems).

As I’m sure you know, if the lump doesn’t go down by tomorrow you need to call your allergist and speak with his/her nurse to make sure you aren’t having an adverse reaction to the injection.  Also, as you continue to get the shots you can have some components not be as effective, which you may need to speak with your allergist about.  After about a year we changed my mix to up certain pollens/dusts so they didn’t wear off as quickly.  In the mean time, I’m all for using a benadryl cream to keep the itching to a minimum and reduce swelling.

I know 2 people who have been uber sucessful with it!  But then my dad did it for years and it never made a dent.
