In States, some corticosteroid sprays are available OTC w/o prescription. Stay away from nasal decongestants sprays ...Read more

If aimed towards the side of the nose where the swelling occurs, it works by reducing inflammation which accounts for much of the nasal symptoms including swelling. ...Read more

How can I resolve the issue to shrink my right nasal turbinate so I won't get any infections. Like what should I do I have Flonase spray ?

Turbinate reduction: It sounds like you have had a number of infections and someone says you have a large turbinate. Nasal steroid sprays can help decrease swollen turbinates a little, so feel free to try using this daily for a month. But if you really have turbinate hypertrophy, it may well not shrink enough to change how often you are infected. If not, you might need a surgical reduction.
