I have heard so many reports that allergy shots are great and really work and then just as many that allergy shots never did a thing for the person taking them. Do you feel they helped you?

My sister swears by  them. She insists they help her and her children but I don't know if I buy it. She and her kids are always sniffling, etc. I think she wants to believe they help so much that she doesn't seem to notice they are all still sick all the time.

It depends on the individual. It's best to talk it over with an allergist to discuss that or other treatments. I took them for five yrs when I was a kid and they helped. I moved and developed new allergies and am doing it again and hope to have good luck this time too.
