Hi,

You are talking about immunotherapy?

If you are specifically found allergic to or having a hypersensitivity to the allergen or antigen of 'cockroach' - a solution with the antigen in many times dilution would be prepared and is given on a monthly basis or at fixed periodic intervals and the dilution decreased gradually - so that you are desensitized or are not allergic to it any longer.

Let us know if that helps.

You could post us if you have any other queries.

Regards.

Hi,

Well the type of allergy shot varies and in your case its not clear which type it is.

If a doctor has prescribed it, you may enquire and find out what in your allergy shot for cockroach.

You may also enquire if you need to take it for a long period of time or does it depend on your immune status.

Best regards
