Allergy shots: Allergy shots (immunotherapy) is usually standardized and given in a monitored environment. Allergy drops are not. There is likely less allergen in drops, and therefore less effective. Also, there is a risk of side effects like oral itching and swelling. Taking allergy drops at home always a risk of a severe allergic reaction in an unmonitored environment.
