Allergy shots can be used to control symptoms triggered by seasonal allergies, indoor allergens, and insect stings. Dr. Farnam will work with you to identify which allergens are affecting you, and therefore which form of immunotherapy will work best. If you suffer from seasonal allergic asthma or hay fever symptoms, you may be allergic to pollen released by trees, grasses or weeds. If you have year-round symptoms, you may be sensitive to indoor allergens, such as dust mites, cockroaches, mold, or dander from pets such as cats or dogs. Allergic reactions to insect stings can be triggered by bees, wasps, hornets or yellow jackets. Please note that allergy shots cannot treat food allergies or chronic hives.
