Banish HayFever for Good!

Hay-fever is caused by your immune system reacting unnecessarily to pollens. Your immune system is such an important part of your body that it will preferentially use up a lot of your energy uselessly ‘fighting off’ pollens which it interprets as attacking you. 

Trees can begin to produce pollen in late January and some grasses continue producing pollen until September so depending on what you’re allergic to, the season can be many months. 

Between 10-15% of us suffer from hay fever symptoms. For many people it causes significant fatigue and problems with concentration and alertness. Research has shown that people can do 5-10% worse in their exams during hay-fever season compared with other times of the year. Of those 10- 15% of people with hay-fever, about 10% do not respond to conventional, easily available treatments like antihistamine tablets, nasal sprays, and eye drops.


Many of these people consider a Kenalog injection to help them get through the season. Each Kenalog injection contains Triamcinolone acetonide 40mg/1ml as the active ingredient. Triamcinolone acetonide belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids (steroids). The principal effect of corticosteroids is to reduce the body’s inflammatory & allergic response and they are used very commonly for many serious medical conditions.


Kenalog is an injection that is injected into the buttock (gluteal) muscle. This is known as an Intramuscular (IM) injection. The skin surface is thoroughly cleaned with an alcohol swab prior to the

injection. It takes a few seconds and is not a very painful injection as the substance itself is not irritating to the tissue.

Potential Benefits

A Kenalog injection helps many people with their symptoms of severe hay-fever. For many people it completely relieves the symptoms for the entire season and for others it reduces the severity of the

symptoms to a point where adding other treatments can allow life as normal. Occasionally a second

dose of Kenalog may be needed. The doctor will discuss this with you.

It is not recommended that anyone has more than 80mg (2 injections) per season except in exceptional circumstances.
