Shots work best: Allergy shots are the most effective method of treating allergies if avoidance is not possible. They help approximately 85% of patients get an average of 75% relief of symptoms and reduce medication use an average of 57% . They help more than most medications, but we usually try avoidance and medications first, because they are cheaper and more convenient.
