Should I have the Hayfever Injection?

If you suffer from severe hayfever 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 allergy symptoms and you are only getting limited relief from your usual remedies.

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 Hayfever Injection (Kenalog 40mg) can provide patients with seasonal relief.
