Hay Fever Treatment

Hay Fever Treatment & Kenalog Injection

Book your appointment

Are you fed up of runny noses, sneezing, tearful eyes and itching? You don't need to suffer in silence anymore - we offer a private Hay Fever Injection that is no longer available on the NHS.  The hay fever injection treatment may be a suitable option for you and could provide relief throughout the entire pollen season.

 

What is the Hay Fever Injection?

The hay fever injection contains Kenalog® (Triamcinolone Acetonide), a known corticosteroid medicine given by deep intramuscular injection typically into the large muscles of the buttock. It is prescribed by medical professionals for many different conditions, including the suppression of inflammatory and allergic disorders such as seasonal allergies (commonly called Hay Fever) and allergic rhinitis.

Hay fever generally affects people during the spring and summer months when pollen levels are highest, however, allergic reactions and similar symptoms could also occur throughout the year for other allergy related problems. This can be discussed with our doctors who will suggest the most appropriate course of treatment for seasonal allergy problems you may be suffering from.

 

Do you have severe hay fever symptoms?

If you are getting limited relief from over-the-counter remedies including anti-histamine tablets, eye drops and nose sprays then you could be having severe hay fever symptoms. When traditional over-the-counter remedies from the pharmacy or supermarket are not working, an injection may be a suitable solution.

 

How many treatments are needed?

This simple treatment for hay fever involves just one injection. If suitable, a single Kenalog® (IM) 40mg Injection can provide season long relief. Gain back your lifestyle with enhanced protection from the physical symptoms of hay fever that disrupt your work and daily life. 

  • It is NOT 100% effective and you can still expect some mild symptoms
  • It is NOT a replacement for standard hay fever remedies, take these too!
  • Some patients may require a second dose to achieve better protection

 

How quickly does the hay fever injection work?

Patients can get some relief within 24 hours, with most patients finding they get symptomatic relief within 72 hours. If your symptoms have flared up, or severe at the time of your appointment, it may take much longer to get the maximum effect of the injection. As a preventative measure, it can also be taken prior to your severe symptoms occuring. 

 

How is it available?

Hay Fever Injections are administered by a GP or Nurse during an appointment at one of our CQC-certified clinics in Liverpool and Manchester. At your appointment, you will have a GP consultation to discuss your symptoms, complete an assessment of consent and be advised on the best course of treatment for your particular hay fever symptoms or allergic reactions, also taking into account your medical history.

Following your appointment and injection, you will be safe to return to your normal daily routine.

What if the Kenalog injection is not suitable for me?

There are times when the Kenalog Injection is not suitable for a particular person. We require all patients to have a consultation with a GP first in order to assess suitability. If Kenalog is not suitable, the doctor will recommend an alternative option for your hay fever and create a treatment plan or prescription based on this.

Please note, that it is at the doctor's discretion whether or not the Kenalog injection is suitable and if it is appropriate to administer the injection at your appointment. Should the Doctor feel that the Kenalog injection is not suitable, you will need to pay £70 for the assessment/consultation. You will not have to pay for the injection itself.

 

What other hay fever treatments can we provide?

We also offer allergy testing to find the root cause of any allergic problems, allowing you to avoid contact with certain items in the future, or find alternatives that won't cause reactions.

For skin conditions related to allergies, we offer appointments with our private consultant dermatologist to suggest treatments and causes of reactions. A referral from your NHS GP is not required.

  • Some patients may require a second dose in accordance with their own immune response and symptoms
