Allergy shot and exercise

Just curious what other people's allergist has told them regarding doing exercise after getting an allergy shot.

My first allergist who I didn't like very much and switched, told me no exercise for two hours before or after a shot. My new allergist who I've been seeing for shots for three years, said that's not necessary, saying that the adrenaline that your body produces during exercise is similar to drugs used for an allergic reaction.

So I did exercise shortly after and had no problems. Just wondering. Thanks

Re: Allergy shot and exercise

Mine never said anything....and everyone in his office knows I'm a confirmed jogger. I always got my shots at lunch though and work out/jog in the afternoons after work so it never would have been in that time frame. But it was never mentioned anyway.

Re: Allergy shot and exercise

Mine suggested no intense exercise within 2 hours of shot.

I tend to get itchy swollen bumps, and I usually ice them down, so I wouldn't want to exercise and get all sweated up anyway.

I really doubt the exercise would do much harm. But, if you are itching, you want to stay cool physically.
