Steroid nasal spray: Nasal sprays containing small doses of corticosteroids are a mainstay of allergy treatment and are generally very safe when used as directed. The most frequent side effects are nasal irritation and nosebleeds. The latter are suspected to occur with nasal yeast infections. These are not usually serious and improve with taking a break in medication use and with using salt water sprays; irrigation. ...Read more

Which of these nasal sprays is more effective for allergy, (flixotide) or (avamys) and when to use it, advance thanks!

Similar : Flixotide is Fluticasone Propionate (flonase in us) and avamys is Fluticasone Furoate (veramyst in us). The side chain of avamys steroid molecule makes it potentially more active so it binds to the receptor tighter and its effect may last longer. A person may have better results with avamys vs flixotide. These are the most effective treatment for allergies and best if started before allergy season. ...Read more

Yes: Salt water nasal sprays are helpful for patients with nasal allergies and sinus disease. The thought is that the saline rinse will help "was away" some of the inflammatory mediators and improve one's nasal symptoms. Nasal saline is also a mild decongestant. ...Read more

Unexpected: It is not an expected side effect from using nasal steroid. Nonetheless you need to stop using it and ask your doctor to check your spraying technique and perhaps try a nasal antihistamine spray. I am also concerned as to whether you are having a severe sinus infection at the left as well. ...Read more
