Hay Fever Injection
A Kenalog injection does not cure hay fever. It just temporarily suppresses the immune system enough to take away the symptoms in most people who need it.
Hay fever (seasonal allergic rhinitis) is caused by an allergic reaction to pollen. It can trigger sneezing, a blocked or runny nose and itchy eyes. It is normal for it to appear at the same time each year.
Severe hay fever symptoms can ruin peoples’ summers and have a detrimental effect on quality of life. It may also prevent people from being able to work optimally.
The UK is particularly affected by pollen with a mixture of flowers and trees such as silver birch and rape seed most likely to worsen symptoms of hay fever.
It is estimated that there is 3 billion trees in the UK! Working out at nearly 50 trees per person.
