If you use nose sprays like nasonex (mometasone) during the spring, does the steroid lower your nose's immunity and make it more likely for you to catch colds?

In brief: No
The local effect of the steroid is too low to affect your body's immune function.
.Which includes a lot more than steroids. The so called immune system is very complex..All it's details have not been fully studied.
