Private Hay Fever Injection | Hay Fever Jab | Available in Birmingham, Cardiff, Shrewsbury & Wolverhampton

Summer is on the way, and many people are already feeling the effects of hay fever. Hay fever symptoms are unpleasant and can hit at any time of year. Symptoms vary from mildly annoying to severe, and without treatment they can start to negatively affect your life and your mental health. With a simple hay fever injection you can combat symptoms and get back to living your life – even when the pollen count is high.

Hay Fever refers to a specific allergy to certain pollens with symptoms including sneezing, congestion, itching throat, headaches, and watering eyes. Most people use tablets such as antihistamines to treat the condition but can find the effects very limited. There is a more convenient and often more effective treatment available in the form of a steroid injection. Hay Fever injections are an alternative treatment for patients who have found no success with other remedies.

If you would like help alleviating your hay fever symptoms and want to be seen quickly, you can simply book your hay fever injection online today and choose an appointment that works for you.

What is the Hay Fever injection?

The injection is for the treatment of severe hay fever and should be considered as a second stage of treatment for patients who have already tried and had little relief from other forms of medication.

The injection does not cure hay fever, it temporarily suppresses the immune system enough to take away the symptoms in most people who need it.

Before having the hay fever injection, one of our doctors will first assess your current hay fever symptom management and carry out a COVID-19 risk assessment assessment to make sure it is suitable for you. If you are a suitable candidate, the injection can be carried out during the appointment.

How can I treat Hay Fever?

Hay fever is the immune system’s response to a foreign substance entering the body. The symptoms of hay fever are your body’s attempt to remove it.

In the case of hay fever, this foreign body is pollen, which is harmless to health but causes our immune system to simply overreact. Common symptoms include an itchy nose, sneezing, runny nose and nasal congestion. Trees produce pollen in late spring, and some grasses continue to produce pollen until September; meaning the season can last for many months.

Around 10 per cent of hay fever sufferers find their symptoms do not respond to readily available treatments such as anti-histamine tablets, eye drops and nasal sprays.

Antihistamines are not without side effects and they do not prove effective in every case. As an alternative, sufferers may consider the use of steroids – a powerful anti-inflammatory medication which suppresses the body’s immune system response.

Steroid treatments are available in the form of an injection. The injection effectively contains the same medication as steroid tablets, but the route of administration is different.

What are the benefits of the injection?

Hay fever injections are a lot more convenient than taking tablets. Most sufferers who take tablets need them every few days, but most patients generally only require one injection to reduce symptoms for the entire hay fever season.

One of the benefits of the injection 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.

Our assessment will look at the symptoms that you are currently experiencing along with the treatment that you are currently using. Our GP will then advise of other suitable types of treatment where appropriate which may include the Hay fever Injection.

Around 10% of sufferers do not respond to conventional treatment, so an injection can help to get through the season.

How long does the injection last?

One injection can be enough to last for a whole hay fever season, depending on pollen levels and the severity of your allergy. However if you require a second dose we provide this at half price.

You can have multiple doses of the injection over the hay fever season, up to a maximum of three doses but these must be carried out at least eight weeks apart.
