Allergist Appointments & Asthma...Yuck

Almost 2 years ago Maddox had his first respiratory spell. Every since then we've been on meds but recently we have a "spell" every 1 to 1 1/2 months so this past week we revisited the allergy & asthma doctor.

First up was an allergy test. He has never had a reaction to any foods so we limited the testing to environmental things...

Honestly, it was one of the saddest things as a mom. Poor little guy was so miserable twisting and squirming because he reacted to almost everything.

As you can see from his back they tested for a bunch and he had only two that didn't react. We were allergic to EVERYTHING except dogs & feathers. 

Anyone done allergy shots/ immunotherapy? 
As he gets closer to 5 we will consider it (that's when they start). So, I'm just curious to hear other's stories on shots.
Did it work? How long did you have to go?
