A 37-year-old female asked:
can flonase treat fluid in the ear even if it wasn't caused by allergies?

Unlikely: Although Flonase has been reported to be effective for certain non-allergic rhinitis, I am a little skeptical about this finding. Thus it is likely more effective in decongesting the nose when the problem is allergic. Even then the chances are likely 50/50. If this problem has been present for more than a month , you need to see an ENT.
