Is Flonase a Steroid Nasal Spray?
WHAT IS A STEROID NASAL SPRAY?
A nasal steroid is a medicine typically prescribed by a doctor to help relieve allergy symptoms and ease breathing through your nose.
HOW DO NASAL STEROIDS WORK?
Congestion and other nasal allergy symptoms are caused by swelling in your nose. Nasal steroid sprays like FLONASE® help reduce swelling, which reduces the sensitivity of your nasal passages and makes them less susceptible to allergy triggers such as pollen, pet dander, dust mites, or ragweed. FLONASE® allergy relief nasal sprays help block 6 of these allergic substances, not just 1.**
