Published on: June 8, 2020

If you suffer with hay fever, you’ll know that with it can come a myriad of annoying and sometimes debilitating symptoms, from fatigue and lethargy to itchy eyes, a runny nose and constant sneezing. It can make our lives miserable through the spring and summer months and though effective in some cases, many over-the-counter medicines and remedies can make us drowsy or not work for very long. Here at The London Cosmetic Clinic in Harley Street, we have a revolutionary solution to hay fever sufferers which is fast and negates the need to use tablets or nasal sprays.

Kenalog 40 is an inter-muscular injection which is used to treat many types of inflammatory conditions, including allergic reactions such as hay fever. It can also be used for skin disorders, blood cell disorders, severe colitis, lung disorders and inflammation of the blood or tendons. It goes without saying that Kenalog can only be administered by a medical professional and here at The London Cosmetic Clinic, we have a team of highly experienced doctors which are on hand to help you control your hay fever on a longer term basis than shop bought remedies or herbal supplements.

What is hay fever?

Hay fever is an inflammation within the nasal passages which is caused when the body’s immune system overreacts to certain allergens, such as pollen, pet hair, dust or even mould. When this reaction takes place, the symptoms can emerge include a runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, itching and watery eyes. Hay fever can affect many aspects of our daily lives including our ability to concentrate or work properly during the day and our ability to get a good night’s sleep. Someone who is a regular hay fever sufferer will usually display symptoms of other conditions, such as asthma, allergic conjunctivitis and atopic dermatitis.

Certain treatments for hay fever which include nasal steroids, antihistamines and receptor antagonists can be ineffective at best but can also offer some unpleasant side-effects. Kenalog 40 (Triamcinolone) is a clinically-proven steroid injection which does not produce the same side-effects as over-the-counter hay fever remedies and is administered every 30 to 40 days. Perfect for those who are on the go and don’t want to be using hay fever medicines every few hours, with mediocre results. Simply put, Kenalog 40 works!

Am I suitable for Kenalog 40 injections for hay fever?

Before any treatment can take place here at The London Cosmetic Clinic, we ensure that you undergo a comprehensive pre-treatment consultation with one of our specialists. This initial meeting includes a questionnaire about your symptoms and hopes for results, a medical history check, so we can ensure that you are able to have the Kenalog injection and have no potential contraindications and to explain fully about the treatment itself and the results you could expect.

Kenalog 40 is proving a God send to many hay fever sufferers who simply cannot function normally when they are experiencing this, sometimes debilitating condition. It is effective in around 24 to 48 hours and will keep your hay fever at symptoms at bay for weeks.

Don’t put up with your hay fever symptoms this spring and summer, book your consultation and take control, with Kenalog 40.
