In brief: Yes
If you mean inhaled nasal steroids, yes.
They are probably the best and most effective way of treating allergic rhinitis. I use them first line and use oral antihistamines as "rescue" medications.

In brief: Inhaled Steroids
Inhaled steroids are primarily for asthma and copd.
Intranasal steroids are used for allergy relief. I am sure it is possible that some of the inhaled steroid gets into the sinus passages but the quantity is minimal and likely not enough to really make a difference.
