The injection is a single or double dose of Kenalog (40mg / 80mg). This depends on the severity of symptoms or size of the person.
All hay-fever injections are administered in the gluteal muscle; this is confirmed by ultrasound to ensure optimal benefit.
Hay fever is similar to every other allergic response in that the immune system will attempt to remove the foreign substance causing the symptoms listed above. However, pollen is harmless to your health and the allergic response is your immune system overreacting. There is currently no cure for hay fever, although the symptoms can be managed effectively with a variety of treatments including anti-histamine tablets, nasal sprays, eye drops, Kenalog™ injections or immune therapy.
