A 33-year-old male asked:
Disclaimer

Started budesonide (Pulmicort) respules / ampules in saline (.5mg/2mL respules in 8oz saline) as a nasal irrigation / neti pot solution. 7 days later I developed a boil on my hip. Is it possible that the boil was from budesonide immunosuppression?

No: Separate issue. Be sure to see your doctor for that boil

Pulmicort: The 0.5 mg dose is once a day. You can give half the dose every 12 hours, so you could give 0.25 mg dose now.
