Health Tip: Pondering Allergy Shots?

(HealthDay News) -- Allergy shots, also called immunotherapy, can help allergy sufferers control symptoms and find relief.

The American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology mentions these factors to consider before you decide to begin the shots:

  • How long allergy season lasts where you live, and how severe your symptoms are.

  • How effective allergy medications have been in preventing your symptoms.

  • Your desire to take allergy medication over the long-term.

  • Your ability to commit to getting the shots and to pay for them.
