Hay fever, Kenalog and COVID-19

It is the start of ‘hay-fever season’ which can lead to ongoing symptoms such as a runny nose, sneezing & sore eyes. Combined with a ‘foggy’ head, these symptoms can cause significant obstruction to everyday life.

What is Hay Fever?

Hayfever is the basic response from your autoimmune system which is trying to prevent the pollen from entering your body. Although pollen is not dangerous to your health, the body has a heightened reaction to it and this is when patients experience itchy nose and eyes, running nose, sneezing and nasal congestion. Usually, it starts late spring and continues up until September.

The Kenalog Injection

The Kenalog injection can reduce symptoms of hay-fever for the entire season. If you have previously been administered other treatments to combat hay fever, such as oral antihistamine tablets, topical eye drops, one solution to alleviate your hay fever symptoms is to get the Kenalog injection. This is a steroid treatment, recommended for those who have severe symptoms.

How does the Kenalog Injection work?

During your appointment, our GPs will take the time to detail the benefits as well as the side effects of the Kenalog injection. They will make sure that the Kenalog injection is the right treatment for you, assessing whether other treatments might be best suitable for your needs. The Kenalog injection is administered intramuscularly and the effects will start working within one to 48 hours after having had the injection.

What are the Benefits of the Kenalog Injection?

-Patients require one dose in order to reduce the symptoms caused by the hayfever for the entire season (up to three months);
-Cost-effective compared to investing in all other treatments;
-The injection does not go through the digestive system or the liver;
-The symptoms of the hayfever can stop your hay fever symptoms for a whole season.

This year is a little different – Why?

“Kenalog is a high dose steroid injection. Steroids are an immunosuppressant drug, so anyone taking these is less able to fight off infections, and that includes the current COVID-19 Virus.

All patients will be required to sign a disclaimer acknowledging the risks.

I would like to thank Dr O’Neill very much for her time today: I get the impression that she is a very caring professional, knowledgeable and reassuring, and that she makes explaining conditions crystal clear, which is exactly what is needed for an anxious patient like myself. The staff that I met were all extremely welcoming, well-groomed and helpful too. Add to this the very relaxing and beautifully scented ambience and it was really a truly positive and pleasant visit. Thank you.

“I have had persistent neck and shoulder discomfort for some time. Regular visits to my local GP did not help. I was recommended to see Dr Sheila O’Neil who gave me a check-up and recommended that I see her physiotherapist colleague, Vicky Graham. I have had three sessions of physiotherapy and have regained full mobility in my neck and shoulders and feel a great deal better. I am very grateful to Dr Sheila and expect, with my husband, to sign up with her as regular patients.”

We took our 2 year old son in to see Dr O’Neill for a meningitis B vaccination recently. Due to shortages of the vaccine, we had been on a waiting list with a well-known high street pharmacist for months without knowing when they would get stock in. We came across Glasgow Medical Rooms who had the vaccination and we managed to get our son booked in the next day. The clinic was very smart and easy to access in the city centre too. Dr O’Neill was great at dealing with our toddler. It was a relief to get the jabs sorted so quickly and would highly recommend the service to others.”

Mrs Crawford

“Dr. Sheila O’Neill and her team quite literally saved my life. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Diagnosis of a serious condition that had been misdiagnosed by three hospitals took less than 2 weeks, including an MRI. Setting aside the professionalism, they are also just extremely nice people. Imagine a GP that truly cares and will be calling the patient after hours to see how they are getting on – that is what I got from Dr. Sheila O’Neill. There are no superlatives that adequately describe the service. Great. Fantastic. Superb.”
