  1. When I was younger I had terrible allergies to basically anything outdoors. Trees, pollen, animals, grass and so on all made my allergies terrible. My doctor advised that I take allergy shots and slowly, my allergies decreased. After about three years of receiving the treatment I was completely cured of my allergies. Now that I don’t have problems with my allergies my asthma is under much better control.
