Allergy shots are an immunotherapy treatment that can help patients naturally increase their tolerance to an allergen. The treatment can work with the immune system to gradually build tolerance and reduce allergy symptoms.
Allergens Addressed by Allergy Shots
Allergy shots are most commonly used for environmental allergies. They can not treat other allergies, such as allergies to food or medication. Some allergens that can be used for allergy shots include:
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
- Bee venom
