Allergy Shot Bruising

The allergy shot therapy leaves me with large bruises at the injection site.  I'm not elderly since I read the older you are the more you bruise. Does anyone have a remedy to prevent or at least reduce this bruising?   The immunotherapy is helping me.  I'm just really embarrased of all the bruises.  Thank you, LW71

Hi,

You need to get a blood work done and also talk to your allergy specialist about this.

You should ask about whether taking antihistamine medications would help after the shots to help reduce the bruising. Apply calamine lotion at the bruise areas.

Let us know if you have any doubts and also about how you are doing.

Hope this helps.

Regards.
