Tuesdays are Your Turn – Allergy Shots for Kids
Today’s question comes from Kelley, whose daughter is highly allergic to cats. And by “highly,” I mean she experiences major symptoms even on a full regimen of allergy meds. The doctor suggested immunotherapy, and since taking a kid for weekly or biweekly jabs is no joke, Kelley’s looking for some good information.
What’s your experience with allergy shots? Do they help enough to make the pain and inconvenience worth it? Any side effects? If so, how bad are they?
Any little bit of advice you have might prove useful, so help another Asthma Mom out and leave your two cents in the comments.
