Are you one of the 10-15% of individuals afflicted by severe hay fever, with symptoms stubbornly resistant to conventional treatments such as antihistamines, nasal sprays, and eye drops? Don’t let hay fever season undermine your everyday vitality. Our salon in Leicester proudly offers Kenalog Hay Fever Injections, a solution to provide quick and lasting relief from severe hay fever symptoms.
Understanding Kenalog Hay Fever Injections
Each Kenalog Hay Fever Injection contains the active ingredient Triamcinolone acetonide 40mg/1ml, belonging to a group of medicines known as corticosteroids (steroids). These substances are incredibly effective at reducing the body’s inflammatory & allergic response, providing considerable relief from hay fever symptoms by temporarily suppressing the immune system.
Kenalog Hay Fever Injections were administered routinely by the NHS until about 5-10 years ago for severe hay fever sufferers. While they no longer prescribe or administer Kenalog for hayfever, it remains officially licensed for the treatment of severe hay fever in the UK and is used regularly in most other countries worldwide.
Your Treatment Procedure
Administered by our highly trained professionals, a Kenalog Hay Fever Injection is injected into the buttock (gluteal) muscle, also known as an Intra-Muscular (IM) injection. The skin surface is thoroughly cleaned with an alcohol swab prior to the injection. The procedure takes just a few seconds and is not very painful, as the substance itself does not irritate the tissue.
Potential Benefits & Considerations
The Kenalog Hay Fever Injection can offer significant relief to many severe hay fever sufferers. In many cases, it completely eliminates symptoms for an entire season, or at the very least, significantly reduces the severity of the symptoms. A second dose might be required in some instances, and this will be discussed with you by our medical professional.
While a Kenalog Hay Fever Injection does not cure hay fever, it alleviates symptoms by suppressing the immune system. The potential effects from Kenalog last for about three weeks after the injection, but many people find the relief from symptoms often lasts the entire season.
Like all medications, Kenalog Hay Fever Injections can cause potential side effects, though these are rare at the dose levels administered in a Kenalog Hay Fever Injection. Some of these effects include mood changes, indigestion, stomach pain, weight gain, eye problems, and others. In the very rare event of an anaphylactic reaction, it is imperative to seek immediate medical attention.
