Hay Fever Injections

Grass Pollen

Should I have the Hay fever Injection?

If you suffer from severe hay fever symptoms such as watery/itchy/red eyes, nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose.

If your anti-histamine tablets, eye drops and nose sprays are not improving your symptoms or you are only getting limited relief.

If you want to gain back your lifestyle with enhanced protection from the physical symptoms of hay fever that disrupt your daily life and work.

No longer available on the NHS, the private Hay fever Injection (Kenalog 40mg) can provide patients with seasonal relief.

When is the best time to have the injection?

It can be given at any time during the season once symptoms have started.

However, patients who suffer every year may choose to have the injection just before their symptoms start.

Where is it injected?

After our GP has checked you for suitability to treatment, an intramuscular injection is provided into the large muscles of the buttock.

How quickly does it start to work?

Most patients are safe to drive, return to work and go about their daily routine immediately following treatment.

The area where treatment is applied may be sensitive for the first hour and may take 24 hours to recover.

After administration, results can develop anywhere from 1 to 72 hours. However, it can take up to 10 days.

How long does it last for?

The Hay fever Injection is not a cure, but seeks to minimise symptoms and provide seasonal relief typically for 1-6 months.

What if the injection fails to work?

The effect of treatment can vary, as each patient has their own immune response. No treatment is guaranteed. However, our GP will work with you to find the best solution.

A second dose may be required for patients whose symptoms were severe at the time of their appointment or whose body weight is high.

Any second dose for Hay fever may be offered at a discounted price if given within the first 14 days of the first dose. Thereafter, the full price will be charged.

Who should not have the injection?

Anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding and anyone who is planning to have surgery in the next 3 months.
