Hay Fever Injections

Kenalog™, also known as triamcinolone, is a synthetic corticosteroid which is a hormone that works within the body to reduce inflammatory responses. It is widely used in medicine for the treatment of certain breathing conditions, arthritis, endocrine diseases, kidney problems, allergies, skin diseases, and some blood disorders. Steroids are one of the most powerful anti- inflammatory medicines that work by suppressing your body’s immune response and ultimately reducing symptoms.

Kenalog™ is administered as an intra-muscular injection into the top of the buttock. Unlike other intra-muscular injections, it is not advisable to inject this into the top of the arm. After injection, the drug is slowly released into the body over several weeks and generally provides relief of symptoms for 3 to 8 weeks. A single vial of Kenalog™ (40 milligrams) is used to treat hay fever in adults, although in rare circumstances, the dosage can be increased if symptoms are not controlled. Due to the longer-term risks of Kenalog™ affecting the body’s own steroid production, it is not recommended to have more than 3 treatments in a year.

Kenalog™ is not a first line treatment for hay fever and must only be considered when symptoms are severe and not controlled by other methods, including limiting pollen exposure and medications, or if other methods produce intolerable side-effects. Over the counter or prescription medication may still be required for symptom control even after receiving a Kenalog™ injection.

      My appointment this morning at 9am was conducted in a manner that dispelled my worries about my visit in this present Covid crisis. Every attempt to make patients feel comfortable and secure has been covered from the moment of entry to the premises until my consultation and treatment was finally over.

      I have been a patient at the practice for many years and this mornings visit went further to impress me greatly on the handling of the current Covid crisis. I must add that all staff members are always very pleasant and welcoming, which helps a lot as a nervous patient.

      Well done to all.

    • As someone who hasn’t been to the dentist for 20 years & was in the situation whereby I had to go I searched the local area for a dentist. I now cannot understand why I waited so long. All the staff are incredibly friendly, understanding & reassuring. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone who is apprehensive about going to a new dentist to give them a call. I have so much more confidence now my teeth have finally been sorted out. I would like to specifically recommend Dr Raluca Ion who has shown unbelievable compassion & professionalism throughout.

      because i always hated my smile and it used to be difficult for me to look at it in the mirror. Now i can’t stop looking at my new teeth! Big thank you to Doctor Raluca and the whole team. You all were amazing, understanding and knew exactly what work my smile needed. I couldn’t imagine a better experience. Thank you!

    • Dr Raluca and her team at King St Dental Practice are just wonderful, I actually enjoy going to the dentist! I’ve had both my top and bottom teeth straightened with Invisalign and I’m SO happy with the results. I now go for my routine appointments and I travel 1 hour 15 mins to get to the practice after moving away but I just don’t want to go anywhere else! The whole team provide such a good service, I highly recommend.
