Hayfever Treatment Hornchurch
The hay fever treatment: all you need to know
Despite the warmer weather, many people dread the arrival of the spring and summer months. Hay fever season can lead to ongoing symptoms such as a runny nose, sore eyes and sneezing. Combined with a ‘foggy’ head, these symptoms can cause significant obstructions to everyday life. With the season now well underway in the UK, many people are suffering and looking for solutions as the pollen levels rise.
As a form of relief from severe hay fever symptoms, we can offer you a range of treatments.
Treatment for hayfever is recommended for those suffering with severe symptoms, who have experienced failure to respond to other treatments.
Hornchurch hayfever Treatment
How does the Treatment work?
The Hornchurch hay fever treatment is a corticosteroid which has anti-inflammatory properties. It suppresses the immune system and stops the natural pollen response from going haywire. This is the same medication given by doctors regularly for tennis elbow, various ligament and muscular strains, osteoarthritis and other joint conditions to target inflammation.
The hayfever treatment contains a steroid called Triamcinolone Acetonide, which is injected into the top of the buttock. Once injected, it slowly distributes from the muscle for three to eight weeks, and travels through the body, offering relief from hay fever symptoms. The effects typically kick in at around forty-eight hours after administration.

Benefits of the treatment
Hay fever treatment is a lot more convenient than taking tablets. Most sufferers who take tablets need them everyday, but most patients generally only require one visit to us to reduce symptoms for the entire hay fever season.
One of the benefits of the treatment is that it does not have to go through the liver or the digestive system, so you can administer a slightly lower dose than the tablet form.
Do I have to have a consultation before hand?
Before any medication is prescribed, all patients must undergo a short consultation and risk assessment with one of our clinicians.
During the consultation, our doctors will assess your symptoms and offer medications options, including tablets and nasal sprays.

The Hay fever treatment is not recommended for:
- Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding

- Those currently suffering from an infection
- Underlying medical conditions
- Children under 18 years
How Much is the Treatment for hayfever in Hornchurch?
