Is there a vaccine or anything that is being worked on to lessen the severity of the allergy? If anyone knows anything, please inform me. It would make me feel so much better. Also, could you give me some more links to go to. Thanks!

Please note it is not a vaccination, it is a treatment. When it does become available, people will have to get a shot every month. The vaccine is being developed by Dynavax Corp. (I posted their website here somewhere) and is a bit further away from the market than the treatment (last time I checked they were in pre-clinical trials).

Thanks for the information! I am new to this site so bear with me. I am not to great with computers, so I have been proud of myself for figuring out how to finally post a message.
