    I did them as a teenager (I’m over 40 now) and I am not convinced they did a whole heck of a lot for me.  Then again, I never had symptoms like mouth swelling, just the general runny nose/sneezing thing.

    I had them from the time I was in 2nd grade until my sophomore year of college.  They helped me and my father tremendously. I’m now in a different climate and area and don’t have the symptoms I used to have which is why I don’t take them anymore. You can always see how they do.

    That being said, they’ve come a long way in allergy prevention. They also have drops you place under your toungue. I’m no expert though so last I knew only certain things could be done in “drop” form?

    Were they able to pinpoint which allergy makes your mouth swell? For instance, they were able to pinpoint that my black out inducing head exploading aches weren’t just migranes, they were because of Egg. If you know exactly which one is causing the swelling hopefully you can do what you need to to avoid as much as possible. Mouth swelling is no joke. That’s extremely dangerous so I would do whatever is necessary.

    I am going for an appointment on Wednesday to get tested and see if I can get them.  I am miserable…my PCP did a blood test and I am allergic to everything under the sun but it took her a year to get her to refer me to an allergist.  So now I am going next week and have to be off antihistamines for a week (shoot me I’m so miserable right now) and am getting a scratch test and blood test again.  I’m praying he signs me up because I wake up every morning sneezing my face off.  My mother, Uncle, Aunt, and friend have had them for years and they have helped them a ton.
