If, during spring or summer times, hay fever controls your life, you’re not alone. One in five Australians suffers from it at some point in their life. But a new hay fever treatment may be the answer. This treatment ca reduce irritating symptoms like sneezing and itchy eyes, offering long-term relief for those suffering from this condition. But what is this new hay fever treatment, and does it really work?
The solution-based treatment for hay fever uses the same ingredient in anti-wrinkle injections. It temporarily blocks specific nerve pathways responsible for triggering hayfever symptoms in the brain. Hence, it is also called Neuro-modulator medicine. In other words, it helps to reduce the body’s response to allergens like pollen and dust.
This treatment is an intranasal treatment. It’s administered via nasal spray, which only takes a few minutes. This treatment formula is an S4 drug, so discussing this treatment with one of our doctors is essential before undertaking it. We also can’t state its registered trademark name here in Australia on our website, as you cannot name a drug under the TGA guidelines.
This treatment is patient-dependent – can work well for some, mildly for a few and not at all for others – we need to be very clear about this. It does take up to 14 days to kick in, however.
It can reduce the intensity of allergic reactions and it can make it a good choice for those who need fast relief but don’t want to take daily medications or shots.
Unlike other treatments, this new hay fever treatment may offer long-term relief from hay fever symptoms. Most patients experience reduced symptoms sometimes for up to a year after the initial treatment. However, in some cases, additional treatments are required. Everyone is different; therefore, results can differ per patient, as with any procedure.
