Hayfever injection - help for severe sufferers: Severe hayfever symptoms can ruin peoples' summers and have a detrimental effect on quality of life and ability to work optimally. Certain parts of the UK are particularly affected by pollens and allergens likely to give severe symptoms, with the most likely culprits being a mixture of flower and tree pollen such as silver birch and rapeseed.

Experts have said allergies like hay fever could cause mental health issues by interfering with feel-good hormones in the body. Mounting evidence suggests people who have allergies are more likely to have anxiety or show similar behaviours. According to research distress caused by being sick could raise the stress hormone cortisol, which in turn tampers with serotonin - a hormone responsible for mood. Allergic reactions cause inflammation as an immune response, the internal swelling has also been linked to conditions like depression. Another biological explanation is that inflammatory chemicals in the sinuses leak into the blood and reach the brain and nervous system.

Around 10% of hay fever sufferers find that readily available treatments, such as over the counter antihistamine tablets and nasal sprays, are ineffective and they continue to struggle to manage their symptoms. As an alternative, sufferers may consider the Kenalog™ corticosteroid injection. Steroids are some of the most powerful anti-inflammatory medications available and they work by suppressing the body's immune response, thereby reducing symptoms.

Kenalog steroid injections are not a first line treatment for hay fever and should only be considered when simple measures have proven ineffective. It is recommended to try medications that are available over the counter or from your Pharmacist or General Practitioner in the first instance.

However, if these treatments fail to control the symptoms of hay fever, a Kenalog injection may be beneficial. What makes Kenalog injections unique is that oral steroids are generally only effective for less than 24 hours. Once the injection is administered the effects can last for at least 4 weeks, and for some, can cover a whole hay fever season.

Hayfever injection is a corticosteroid injection which has anti-inflammatory properties. It suppresses the immune system and stops the natural pollen response from going 'haywire'. This is the same medication given by doctors regularly for tennis elbow, various ligament and muscular strains, osteoarthritis and other joint conditions.

This can help control a wide number of disease states involving excessive inflammation, including severe allergic reactions, inflammation of the lungs in asthma and inflammation of the joints in arthritis, and a proven treatment for hay fever sufferers.

There's currently no other intervention available to severe hayfever sufferers in the UK that offers greater convenience, symptom relief and patient satisfaction than this single intramuscular injection which can last beyond 4 weeks and for some a whole hay fever season. We have hundreds of messages each hayfever season from grateful patients who feel that they have regained their quality of life.

A Kenalog hayfever injection helps many people with their symptoms of severe hay-fever. For many people it completely relieves the symptoms for the entire season and for others it reduces the severity of the symptoms to a point where adding other treatments can allow life as normal. Occasionally a second dose of Kenalog may be needed. It is not recommended that anyone have more than 80mg (2 injections) per season except in exceptional circumstances. Steroids are powerful medications designed to reduce the body's inflammatory and allergic responses. An injection of Kenalog 40mg is approximately equivalent to the effects you would get from taking a 5mg tablet of Prednisolone every day for about 3 weeks.
