The following: if asking about the technique then refer to this link where it's explained nicely (too long to paste here): https://www.drugs.com/flonase.html If asking in regards to dosage then either 1 puff/spray (50 mcg) in each nostril twice daily, or 2 puffs in each nostril once daily.

Nasal spray: Follow package instructions. 1-2 sprays each side once to twice a day. Best used through the entire season for allergy nasal symptoms. Can be used all year if you have year round allergy. Direct the spray straight in, into the nostril, not to the center nor the sides of the nose (in front of a mirror may help). And bend the head forward. Spray, then gently inhale through the nose.

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.

See your Dr.: It would be nice to find out the root of the problem. Therefore you need to see a dermatologist. Once you have been properly diagnosed we can attempt proper options on how to better treat this condition.
