Just wondering how many Mom's & Dad's of pa children had allergy shots when they were young?

I have always thought ea's and having a child with a food allergy was linked somehow so that's why I would be interested in knowing how many of us had allergy shots or take drugs to combat allergies.

I didn't have allergy shots, but my husband did when he was a young adult. They were for the environmental allergies. And by the way, they made him feel worse, not better.

No allergy shots for either parent. I do have seasonal allergies and occasional asthma, and I found out when Kelsey was diagnosed that my father had food allergies as a child.

I had allergy shots when I was a pre-teen for cats, my husband had none. My mother also was a test subject during the development of allergy shots.

I received allergy shots from about age 15 - 21. They helped tremendously, by the way. My dh takes Claritin for seasonal allergies.

Im not sure exactly how long, and exactly what ages but I had allergy shots from probably 7 to 17. I'll have to ask my mom if she remembers.
Dh only has hayfever.

I had shots when I was a child (under 10). I think they were to housedust and mold but I can't be sure.

I had shots for a year when I was about 30 (before I found out I was pg with my elder, non-PA DS). I started them again after my PA son was born but had to stop when I kept anaphylaxing from them.
DH and I both have EA's. Personally I'm rooting for some good hard frosts because they're just about doing me in right now. [img][/img]

No allergy shots for DH or myself and we are not allergic to anything--for the time being.
