: Sammy, they shouldn't hurt more than other needles that you have had. There is a cream that can be put on about half an hour (I think) before the needle is to be given which is supposed to numb the area so it won't hurt. You might try asking your allergist about it- I think it is called emla cream or something like that- your doctor should know. Good luck and I hope they help you.
: Sammy, They should'nt hurt that much once you get ussed to them they don't hurt. It helps not to watch and right before they give it to you take a deep breath and let it out slowly in the process of them giving it to you. If it hurts or itches after you get it take a Benedryl and put some ice on it
