My doctor gave me a Kenalog shot for allergies. Is this a common remedy? Is there something better?” ; Kenalog, an injectable corticosteroid, is a medication that reduces inflammation in the body, including inflammation related to allergies. Whenever possible, it is better to use corticosteroid medications that only go where they are needed. Specifically, corticosteroids can be sprayed into the nose for nasal symptoms, or inhaled into the lungs for allergy-related asthma, rather than injected or taken in pill form. This is preferable, because much of your body is not affected by allergies , and there is usually no reason to give a whole-body medicine. In addition, the doses involved with injected or oral corticosteroids are much higher … your symptoms, it is best to have prescriptions on hand so that you can start the medicines quickly, when you need them. This approach works far better than waiting until the symptoms become severe and require a much stronger treatment. ; Kenalog Shots for Allergies? ; “My doctor gave me a Kenalog shot for allergies.
