In brief: Yes!

Immunotherapy has been shown to prevent the development of new allergies and, in children, it can prevent the progression of the allergic disease from allergic rhinitis to asthma.
Allergen immunotherapy can lead to the long-lasting relief of allergy symptoms after treatment is stopped.
