Can you really get "desensitised" from allergies?
Hi

I have ended up taking Allergex every day because of hayfever, but this week there must be something new in the air - my hayfever is TERRIBLE. I heard that you could get "desensitised" from allergies. I hate taking Allergex every day, does this desensitisation work? If so, how do you go about it and what can you expect to pay? Thanks

Sue, you can be desensitised against certain allergies, bee venom being the most successful one. Another option would be to take a better antihistamine than Allergex®. You can try something like Deselex® or Kestine® - they’re much more effective than Allergex® and have none of the side effects. Good luck.
