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

I gave three sprays of fluticasone nasal spray accidentally in each of my kids nose who is 5 year old. Please let me know if it’s dangerous.
Your kid will be ok: I'm assuming this was prescribed for some reason but either way any dose of fluticasone just once is unlikely to have deleterious effect. Nasal sprays, in general, should be avoided in kids if not prescribed. Decongestant sprays are addicting and cause worsening symptoms over time. Steroids such as fluticasone, disrupt hormonal balances and normal adrenal function if used regularly. ...Read more

Yes: Loratidine and fluticasone nasal spray are effective when used together. If this is not effective, adding an intranasal antihistamine (rx), such as azelastine (astelin) or olpatadine (patanase) is an option. Dymista is a combination of fluticasone and azelastine and works quickly. None of these products should adversely affect asthma or your current medications. ...Read more

See ENT: It is unusual for fluticasone to cause dryness in the nose. You need to make sure that you are aiming the spray towards the lateral side of the nose and not straight in. Consider trying other nasal steroid options. If the problem persists, see an ENT. If you were much older or have had turbinates reduced, then I would consider dryness as the issue and use saline spray instead. ...Read more
Not really: The only minor risk may be of fungal infection of the throat (aka thrush), which is treatable and much more commonly occurs with steroid containing inhalers. More importantly, the medication will be less effective in the nose if landing in the throat. Try a more gentle sniff and pinch the nose after spraying to keep the medication local. ...Read more
