    Hay Fever Injections & Treatment in Leeds

    If you experience moderate to bad hay fever symptoms during high pollen months, a hay fever steroid injection can be a great solution to help you get your life back on track. 

    What is Hay Fever?

    Hay fever is an allergy to pollen and for many, the warmer weather can be the start of “hay fever season”. It is usually most common between late March and September, especially on warm and humid days when the pollen count is at its highest.  Some people suffer with severe hay fever symptoms which may begin to impact everyday their life. If you feel your hay fever is affecting your lifestyle, contact our team to discuss your options or book a treatment today. 

    What are the Symptoms of Hay Fever?

    Hay fever symptoms can vary and some may have a huge impact on your mood and lifestyle. These include; 
    • sneezing and coughing
    • a runny or blocked nose
    • itchy, sore or watery eyes
    • itchy throat, mouth, nose and ears
    • headache
    • earache
    • feeling tired

    Who is a Hay Fever Injection Suitable For?

    Hay fever symptoms can often be alleviated using antihistamine tablets. However, for some, these may not work or may have unpleasant side effects - in this case, if you are over 16 years old, you can consider a hay fever injection.  Please note, the steroid injection must be 4 weeks either side of the Covid Vaccines.  

    How Does a Hay Fever Injection Work?

    The hay fever steroid treatment is a dose of corticosteroids, which is an anti-inflammatory treatment that will work to prevent the body's immune system from reacting. In most cases the cortisone shot starts to work very quickly once injected and you can often start to see results in as little as 1 to 72 hours after you have received the hay fever treatment. 

    What are the Benefits of a Hay Fever Injection?

    Hay fever injections have helped many people alleviate their hay fever symptoms and return to normality. Some further benefits of the hay fever injection include:
    • Symptoms can be relieved after one injection
    • Can potentially suppress symptoms for the whole season
    • There is no downtime following the hay fever injection 
    • Hay fever symptoms can be alleviated for the entire season 
    • Side effects, although possible, are minimal and not common (see below)
