Let’s start with the facts. There is no cure to Hayfever, and there’s no way to avoid getting it, despite us all wishing there was.
We have all had a look online at tips and tricks on how to avoid hayfever symptoms but it’s pretty much telling us to stay home, isn’t it? Meanwhile, this beautiful time of year is perfect for outdoor activities like gardening and sunbathing, but these hayfever symptoms are leading us to be trapped in the house with all the windows and doors closed, just to simply avoid it.
It doesn’t seem right, does it? To stay inside when it’s the most gorgeous day out there. If only there was something more than the daily anti-histamine tablet and nasal spray to help us?
Well at Neo-Derm, we offer the Anti-inflammatory/Hayfever Injection which will help fight those nasty symptoms, and give a long-lasting relief.
What is Hayfever?
Hay fever is an allergic reaction to pollen, typically when it comes into contact with your mouth, nose, eyes and throat.
Hayfever is usually worse for people between March and September, especially when the weather is warm, humid and windy, as this is when the pollen count is at its highest.
What are the symptoms?
- Sneezing and Coughing
- Runny or blocked nose
- Itchy, red or watery eyes
- Itchy throat, mouth, nose and ears
- Feeling tired
- Tightening in chest
- Wheezing or short breath
The symptoms sound pretty much like the common cold but the way to tell the difference is that hayfever can last months, whereas the common cold will last no longer than 2 weeks.
What can we do about it then? If the antihistamine pill doesn’t help relieve your symptoms, and the additional throat and nasal spray isn’t helping either, there’s an additional option to have the hayfever injection. It’s a very quick treatment requiring a short consultation with the doctor and a quick injection.
What is the Hayfever injection?
The Hayfever injection at Neo-Derm contains a steroid called triamcinolone acetonide and is injected into a large muscle in the body, usually the buttocks.
It is an anti-inflammatory injection that helps many people with their symptoms of hay fever and sinus problems.
Does it actually work?
For many people, it completely relieves the symptoms and for others it reduces the severity of the symptoms to a point where adding other treatments can allow life as normal.
On the other hand, Occasionally a second dose may be needed. The doctor will discuss this with you during a consultation. It is not recommended that anyone have more than 80mg (2 injections) per season except in exceptional circumstances.
In conclusion, the hayfever injection has proven to be a game-changer for those suffering from seasonal allergies. With its effectiveness in providing long-lasting relief from symptoms like sneezing, itchy eyes, and congestion, it allows individuals to reclaim their enjoyment of the outdoors.
Say goodbye to the constant struggle and embrace a life free from the burdens of hayfever. Don’t let allergies hold you back any longer – take control with the hayfever injection and breathe freely once again.
