What do allergists do if you don't like shots? Are the oral allergy desensitization instead of shots working?

In brief: Yes.
Oral forms of immunotherapy definitely work, although slightly less effectively than shots.
Your insurance may not cover the oral form since it is not yet approved by the fda.
