Hayfever

KENALOG™ - £55 An injection for severe hayfever symptoms

KENALOG™ 40mg/1ml - a corticosteroid injection

Severe hay fever symptoms can ruin peoples' summers and have a detrimental effect on quality of life and ability to work optimally.

Certains 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 rape seed.

If you have severe symptoms that fail to respond to other treatments, such as oral antihistamine medications like Clarityn, Zirtek, Fexofenadine, topical eye drops and so on, it is possible to request and appointment to discuss the KENALOG™ injection at our clinics in Nottingham, Derby, Leicester, Sheffield, Leeds and Watford.

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

As with all injected medications, the doctor will undertake a careful risk assessment to make sure that you are a good candidate for treatment, and will explain the potential side effects and likely benefits in detail.

In our 20 year experience of administering KENALOG™, we have seen virtually nothing in the way of even mild 'side effects' with one person reporting a slight dimpling of the skin at the site of the injection - this dimpling is uncommon, however patients are always advised that it may occur and like all administered medications, the risks of any treatment must be balanced against the potential benefit of the treatment given.

The overwhelming feedback from patients in terms of response, control of symptoms and improvement in quality of life is very positive.

It it given in the top of the buttock and starts working almost immediately and typically 'kicks in' anywhere from one to forty eight hours after administration.

This medication administered when hay fever symptoms first appear can give symptom remission that lasts for the duration of the entire pollen or allergen season (usually three months).

The dose of Kenalog required to control severe symptoms is partly related to body weight, and heavier subjects will require a larger dose to ease their symptoms. Our standard doses administered are 40mg-80mg per patient per season.

The full range of treatments options available for hay fever will be discussed by doctors, who will decide whether the potential benefits of the treatment for severe hayfever outweigh any risks.

Every year our clinics see a cohort of 'desperate' people who have tried the oral and topical medications without much symptomatic improvement - including those who work outdoors, those who have severe allergic reactions to pollen, business people whose summers and meetings are ruined by severe symptoms, drivers who feel unsafe to be on the road and, interestingly, a increasing number of pharmacists, doctors and NHS GPs.
