The immunotherapy route is VERY effective. I think with the super severe reaction you have I would certainly explore that option.

My doctor has put me on an immune builder specific to mold and pollen. The pollen one is formulated for my part of the US.

I almost died from a mold infestation in my apartment. The EMTs saved my life and the meds have helped me get well.

Allergena is the brand. You can find it on Amazon. My doctor is a homeopath and a nutritionist. I follow her advice to the letter so I don't overdose on the meds.

I don't think this will help the OP but I wanted to provide info to other people who suffer from allergies.

Prior to 1995 at the age of 57, I lived a life with allergy/sinus issues...Took all the otc drugs back in those days and went to an allergist for maybe a year, it's been a long time. Got the shots etc. Dealt with an allergist, thinking back, who always had a red face himself and not the picture of health and a waiting room FULL of people.

In Aug 1995, I attended a lecture on Pycnogenol which was arriving into the U.S. from France and I was interested to hear about this OPC antioxidant. We were told it "MAY" prevent cancer(s). That was music to my ears.

So a month later, I started on Pycnogenol and in about 5 days or so threw away all the drugs I took. I had a revelation with allergy/sinus issues. Not what I started on "P" for, I was taking it to prevent cancer.

A year on Pycnogenol and then I found Grape Seed Extract and I'm in year 21 of taking these OPC's...never used a drug again. And feel great and as far as I know, no cancer.

Gums are improved, I was told I had deep pockets in the late 80's....no more. Never did the scaling they talk about for the deep pockets. My gums are "tight".
Eyesight is good for 77 and no eye diseases. Haven't changed script for my glasses for 7 yrs or so...don't even go to eye doc these years and hardly to a dentist. I make my own TP too which is coconut oil based. Other topic.

There are 1000's of links on these powerful OPC's and what they address. I'll post more later.
