Hayfever is a seasonal allergy that usually causes symptoms such as itchy eyes, sneezing, runny nose, headaches and tiredness.
Many individuals treat hayfever with daily antihistamine tablets and nasal sprays. The condition is often chronic and can be distressing to many individuals.
The symptoms of hayfever occur due to inflammation of the nasal mucosa (lining of the nose) in response to certain allergens. Common triggers include dust mites, grasses, and pet dander.
Studies now suggest that the active ingredient in common anti-wrinkle injections can be used to effectively treat some of the symptoms of hay fever. The use of topically applied anti-wrinkle injections to the nasal passages works to block nerve endings in the nasal mucosa, leading to a reduction in inflammation of the tissues and therefore cause a reduction in severity and even the onset of symptoms.
Not all symptoms of hayfever respond to this treatment with clients primarily seeing a result in runny and congested noses.
