Itchy watery eyes or nose? Stuffy nose all the time? Sneezing fits?
If you have been putting off allergy testing or allergy shots but are suffering from symptoms that are difficult to manage or require constant medication, this is a great time to get your allergy skin testing done and getting your symptoms under control. Identify the cause, manage sources of exposure, use medications appropriately when needed, and for a more permanent solution, consider allergen immunotherapy.
Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) need a build up period of a few months to reach maximal effectiveness — if springtime is your worst season, starting allergen immunotherapy now will offer you protection from severe allergy symptom flares in the coming spring months.
Are you a candidate for allergen immunotherapy ("allergy shots")?
- Itchy eyes or nose, sneezing, coughing, and wheezing
- Seasonal worsening

- Allergy medication use >50% of the time
