For years: Nasal steroid sprays are very safe. As long as you dont develop complications like bleeding, long term daily use under the supervision of your doctor is safe. Be sure to aim the tip up and out on each side to avoid trauma to nasal septum.

Allergy: It's best to limit your exposure to the allergens if possible. Antihistamines taken regularly may eliminate your symptoms. Decongestants can make you jittery, keep you awake or even cause high blood pressure! your pcp, ENT or allergist can do more if necessary.
