Allergy shots, also known as immunotherapy, is a long-term treatment that decreases symptoms for many people with asthma and allergies. The shots decrease sensitivity to allergens and often leads to lasting relief of allergy symptoms, even after treatment is stopped.
Why would I get allergy shots?
If you have trouble managing your allergy symptoms with medicine alone, allergy shots can provide long-term relief. Allergy shots are also effective if you are allergic to insect stings.
Watkins Allergy and Asthma Clinic has two locations, in Jacksonville and Fleming Island, to make getting your allergy shots convenient. If you need allergy shots or want to discuss whether or not this treatment is right for you, schedule an appointment or contact us today.
