Understanding Hay fever Injections: What They Do and Where to Get Them

June 21, 2023

Are you one of the 10-15% of the UK population that suffers from Hay Fever? Have you tried over-the-counter medications, nasal sprays, and eye drops, only to find that these solutions fall short of providing the relief you need? If so, it’s time to consider an alternative solution: Kenalog Hay Fever Injections.

Understanding Hay fever Injections

Hay fever injections (or Hayfever Injections), specifically Kenalog injections, contain Triamcinolone acetonide, a type of corticosteroid. These powerful medicines work by reducing the body’s inflammatory and allergic responses, providing a reprieve from debilitating hay fever symptoms. This doesn’t cure hay fever; rather, it temporarily suppresses the immune system, often providing symptom relief for the entire season.

Kenalog injections used to be a routine NHS-prescribed solution for severe hay fever sufferers. However, the NHS no longer administers Kenalog due to identified potential risks. Despite this, the injections are officially licensed for severe hay fever treatment in the UK and are still administered in many other countries around the world.

Benefits of Hay fever Injections

Many people find that a hay fever injection drastically improves their quality of life during the pollen season. The benefits can range from a complete relief of symptoms to a significant reduction, making other treatments more effective. This means you can resume your normal activities, attend important events, and even work more efficiently without the constant discomfort of hay fever symptoms.

Common Questions and Concerns

As with any medical treatment, it’s natural to have questions and concerns about hay fever injections. We’ve addressed some of the most common ones here:

Is the injection painful? The injection is administered into the buttock muscle, and while it might sound daunting, the process is quick and usually not very painful.

What are the possible side effects? While side effects are rare, they can occur. Potential side effects can range from mood changes to an increased risk of infections due to the temporary suppression of the immune system. Serious adverse effects like anaphylactic reactions are extremely rare.
