Are you looking to end your hay fever misery? If you are not getting relief from over the counter remedies, the Hay Fever Injection may be a suitable option. As anyone who suffers from acute bouts of hay fever will tell you, this pesky pollen allergy can be all consuming and make life extremely difficult. There's no cure for the condition, also known as allergic rhinitis, so treatments are the only way to keep symptoms in check.
The hay fever injection, called Kenalog, is still officially licensed for the treatment of severe hay fever in the UK, but it's only available in private clinics. It contains triamcinolone acetonide, which belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids (steroids).
The potential benefits of a Kenalog injection include:
· Reduced hayfever symptoms after one injection
· One injection should treat your symptoms for three months
· Affordable treatment compared to all the other treatments
· No surgery needed
There is scientific evidence that the hay fever injection is effective. In a randomised, double blind ,placebo controlled trial from 1972, the hay fever injection was administered to 97 people with severe symptoms of hay fever. After 10 days, symptoms had improved or resolved in 94 per cent of the patients.
The hay fever jab doesn’t cure hay fever, it works to temporarily suppress the immune system enough to stop symptoms.
