Allergy immunotherapy—otherwise known as allergy shots—are meant to increase your child's allergic reactions by increasing his or her resistance to allergens. Allergens can include pollendust mitesmold and pet dander.

Injection therapy is just one part of the allergy treatment plan. Environmental controls and medications, combined with injection therapy, are necessary for the successful management your child's allergic symptoms.
