Hay Fever Cured With Simple Surgery!
Hay Fever Sufferers: Here's Relief!
Hay fever causes symptoms like a runny nose and worse because the mucous membrane inside the nose becomes swollen and irritated, usually because of an allergic reaction to pollen or dust.
Most times, hay fever sufferers use antihistamine sprays to relieve symptoms, along with other types of over-the-counter remedies, but the problem is that they often don't work. For that reason, many people who are afflicted with hay fever choose surgery--but before now--the side effects, like pain and bleeding, gave one pause.
Now there's a simple surgery that relieves symptoms with very few side effects, in fact, practically none. Read more about it!
Hay Fever Relieved by Radiofrequency Surgery!
Radiofrequency surgery is a procedure whereby the tissue is heated under the mucous membrane. This reduces its size and kills small blood vessels that fuel the irritated parts of the membrane. The good news? The surgery is virtually painless and there are very few side effects.
The findings were published in the Archives of Otolaryngology--Head & Neck Surgery.
Hay Fever and Radiofrequency Surgery: More Good News!
In a new study, it was found that the effect of the surgery on hay-fever sufferers lasted even after five years.
Dr. Hsin-Ching Lin, Chang Gung University College of Medicine, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, followed patients who had radiofrequency surgery for hay fever. According to the study, about six in 10 reported continuing improvement in their condition after five years with no side effects. 57% said they would do the procedure again.
