Does having food allergy or tolerance be a cause of turbinate hypertrophy?does stopping nasonex (mometasone) cause relapse?
More likely inhalent: There are various types of food allergies and sensitivities which can cause skin, GI, respiratory and sinonasal symptoms. Generally turbinate hypertrophy is due to inhalant allergies. Nasal steroid sprays derive their benefit after days of use and must be continued to function.

Do i need to stop using nasonex (mometasone) & anti-histamines prior to radio frequency turbinate reduction? Will using them give a wrong indication of the size?

Thus whether you use the medication or not is not important if your nasal congestion has responded well to medications, then i would caution against having a turbinate reduction which will likely provide only temporary relief. You should talk to the surgeon re. His preference however. ...Read more
4 year old was on nasonex (mometasone) for 3 weeks and runny nose/congestion improved. Tried to stop and it's back! is nasonex (mometasone) or astepro safer for long term use?
My doc put me nasonex (mometasone) and tessalon pearl for cough and post nasal drip, sneezing, stuffy for over 3 weeks but I still can't stop coughing. Need sleep?
A good start: Nasonex (mometasone) ia good start if one suspects environmental allergy causing symptoms described for duration of greater than 2 weeks. However, it will take days to weeks of daily use to reach maximum efficacy. Would add twice daily saline irrigation and oral antihistamine such as cetirizine (Zyrtec otc). Can even add decongestant to the antihistamine for faster short-term relief. See allergist for work up ...Read more
My 7 yrs old has enlarged adenoids. His ENT has given him nasonex (mometasone) spray for 2 months two times. After treatment he stopped snoring. But he starts snoring again after couple of weeks after stop med.
Adenoids ; snoring: Hello, when we prescribe intranasal steroids, we are doing so to help reduce swelling within the nasal cavity. Since your child noted a resolution of the snoring it seems like now there are a few options. Surgical removal of the adenoids, continued ins use or possibly an allergy eval to determine if the adenoids tissues are reactive to allergy. I would recommend the allergy eval. As your doc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Nasonex (mometasone) is : A good way to get off afrin (oxymetazoline). No rebound effect. No, you don't need to taper it like oral steroids. Remember, never use afrin (oxymetazoline) for more than 2-3 days max or you will get that horrible rebound congestion. Good luck ! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
