Hay fever is a type of allergic reaction that’s experienced by millions of people across the world. It’s triggered when the immune system overreacts to allergens such as pollen, dust or animal dander. When a hay fever sufferer encounters these allergens, their immune system produces antibodies that cause histamine and other chemicals to be released by the body. These chemicals can result in a range of uncomfortable symptoms, including sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion and itchy eyes.
Hay fever is considered to be a seasonal condition that’s typically experienced during the spring and summer months, when there’s a larger amount of pollen in the air. However, it’s possible to experience hay fever symptoms right throughout the year when exposed to indoor allergens such as dust mites or pet dander.
Some of the most common symptoms of hay fever include:
While hay fever symptoms can be controlled using antihistamine medications, they’re not always enough to stop symptoms entirely, or they may cause undesirable side effects. As antihistamines can only treat the symptoms of hay fever, they’re unable to address the underlying cause, which means they can’t give long-lasting relief. Fortunately, an innovative hay fever treatment is now available that can provide more effective and longer lasting relief from hay fever symptoms.
The hay fever relief treatment we offer is a relatively new treatment that provides relief from hay fever symptoms by targeting nerve endings in the nasal cavity. During the treatment, a topical medicine is applied to the nasal cavity using a sterile applicator. This medicine contains the same substance that’s used in anti-wrinkle injections, which works to block the release of certain neurotransmitters that trigger an immune response to allergens such as pollen. By stopping this immune response from occurring, the symptoms of hay fever can be reduced or even eliminated.
This hay fever allergy treatment can last anywhere from a few months up to several years depending on the individual, after which the effects may gradually wear off. However, it’s possible for some people to experience longer-lasting relief from their symptoms. While the treatment is still relatively new, early studies have shown promising results in reducing hay fever symptoms such as nasal congestion and sneezing.
