At Midland Health, we also offer Rhinolight treatment for the relief of hayfever symptoms, as well as eczemas and rashes caused by other allergic reactions. When other common solutions, such as sprays and steroids fail, UV light therapy on the nose can be a successful hayfever treatment for both children and adults.
The Rhinolight treatment is non-invasive and pain-free, with some patients reporting an improvement from as early as the first session. As the application of phototherapy for hay fever symptoms boasts up to 90% success rate, it’s a very popular choice amongst our hay fever patients.
How does Rhinolight Treatment Work?
We use modern Rhinolight machines to shine a special high-intensity UV light into each nostril. Each treatment session takes just 2-3 minutes. The procedure is completed every few days for at least 3-4 weeks to relieve the symptoms of hayfever.
Although no treatment can guarantee results, most people report alleviation of their symptoms within the first two weeks of UV light treatment with a Rhinolight machine.
Once you have completed a full course of treatment over a month, you can schedule follow-up “booster” sessions every 2-3 months to maintain the effectiveness of the treatment.
What are the benefits of Rhinolight phototherapy?
UV therapy offers a number of benefits for people suffering from hayfever and other allergies including:
- Blocking histamine to prevent allergy and hay fever symptoms that impact the nose and the sinuses
- Destroying some of the cells responsible for allergies (eosinophils and lymphocytes)
- Reducing the number of ECP and IL-5 in nasal secretions – they are amongst the main triggers of rhinitis and sinusitis
As the Rhinolight machine does not damage the nose or the sinuses and the procedure is completely pain-free, it’s a perfect solution for your seasonal hayfever relief and allergic rhinitis.

Are there any side effects of Rhinolight therapy?
No, the UV light treatment is safe and has no known side effects. Phototherapy causes no damage to the nasal lining or the cells that line the nose and sinuses.rnrnYou may experience occasional, short-lived dryness of the nasal lining but a simple moisturising gel or spray can alleviate that.
Can I use the Rhinolight machine if I am breastfeeding?
Yes, Rhinolight treatment is safe for breastfeeding or expectant mothers.
Can I use the Rhinolight machine if I am an athlete?
Yes, the treatment is perfect for professional athletes who are not allowed to take certain hay fever medications.
