Looking around at the beautiful seas of yellow daffodils, trees displaying buds of blossom and the grass starting springing to life it safe to say that Spring has arrived.
But for those that suffer from hay fever – this can be an assault on the senses.
For many hay fever sufferers, Kenalog injections have provided relief to their symptoms. However, Kenalog is a corticosteroid and works by suppressing parts of the immune system and reducing inflammation.
This is usually perfectly safe in the majority of patients.
However, with the Covid vaccine, we are advising our clinic clients NOT to have the Kenalog injection.
With immunosuppressive medications, a client may be more susceptible to infection. There is not enough data available to determine the health impact of administering the Kenalog injection during the Covid vaccination regime. This is why we have decided to not offer Kenalog to clients that are on the vaccination programme at this time. We are, of course, constantly monitoring the guidelines and research and we will continue to review this.
