Use the medicine avamys for 2 months, affect the defenses of my nose? Which the action of this remedy in the nasal passages?

Topical steroid: Avamys is fluticasone furoate. In the us veramyst contains the same topical corticosteroid. Corticosteroids are anti-inflammatory. They do no have the same effects or side-effects associated with androgens, muscle-building drugs commonly referred to as "steroids". Avamys helps control the allergic reaction at many points. Side-effects - pain, bleeding - are due to the irritation of the jet spray. ...Read more

Possibly viral: Most "pinkeye" or conjunctivitis is actually viral, so antibiotic eye drops/ointment are usually not effective. Viral conjunctivitis tends to run it's course in 7-10 days. It can be very contagious, spreading from one eye to the other or to other people. Hand washing is essential. The same viruses that cause pink eye can also cause upper respiratory infections, so your symptoms may be related. ...Read more

I have empty nasal syndrome, what is the best solution to keep nasal passage wet? Its getting dry and block often.

Irrigate: I assume that by saying empty nasal syndrome you mean that you have had multiple sinus surgeries and have chronic nasal crusting and dryness. Unfortunately that is a consequence of outdated sinus surgery, though at the time this was thought to be the best modality. Irrigating often with a high flow saline irrigation, much more than simple ocean spray is typically quite helpful. I like the neilmed system that can be purchased from the grocery store and is inexpensive. Seeing your physician and considering adding pulmicort, something typically used to treat asthma or emphysema by inhalation into the lungs can be quite helpful with this condition. ...Read more
