Re: After effects with allergy shots.

I know exactly what you mean! Once I got to the top and near top dose, my arms swelled up after the shots and I suffered symptoms of stuffiness and itchy eyes for a day or so after the shots. cortisone cream and ice on my arms helped with the swelling and the symptoms were helped with antihistamines taken the day of shots as well. After I had done the top dose at maintenance for 2-3 times, my arms no longer swell. Just slightly sore and a small bump and the symptoms have been gradually improving and I just get a day or two of minor reaction afterwards. It's worth it!
