Answer

The clinic should have literature about allergies, and the office staff should continually educate patients and reinforce their understanding of avoidance and environmental control techniques.

Patients undergoing immunotherapy should be instructed to report any reactions from the previous injection and any changes in their health status during each visit (eg, change in medication, new onset of upper respiratory tract infection, worsening of asthma).
