In brief: Usually not but

The answer depends upon what item you are discussing.
....This doesnt work with foods(although research is promising to do so), regarding pollens mold spores etc...If you expose yourself through allergy shots, it will work. It's best for you to see an allergist to have a consultation and simple testing..They will be very helpful. Good luck.

No, you may actually become more allergic with repeated exposure.
