Flixonase aqueous nasal spray will effectively treat and prevent allergic rhinitis. Its active ingredient is a corticosteroid called fluticasone propionate, which has an anti-inflammatory action. It effectively treats both seasonal and year-round allergies.
Allergic rhinitis is caused by a hypersensitive immune system. When a harmless allergen enters the nasal passage, the immune system rejects it, believing the allergen to be a dangerous invader, such as a virus. To guard against this phantom infection, the body will start to produce excess mucus. This is what causes the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. These symptoms include; nasal itching, sneezing, watery nasal discharge, and a sore throat. Allergens most likely to trigger a bout of allergic rhinitis are; pollen, pet fur, dust mites, and mould spores. Why certain people develop this hypersensitivity is not completely understood. However, people seem to be more susceptible if there is a family history of the condition. This would suggest that genetics can play a role. Allergic rhinitis is a very common complaint. In The UK it affects 20% of people of all ages. Fortunately for most, the condition doesn’t pose any danger to your health. However, the symptoms can become quite debilitating, severely inconveniencing a sufferer’s day-to-day life. In rare cases, allergic rhinitis can lead to sinusitis or a middle-ear infection.
Allergic rhinitis is not curable. However, its symptoms can be effectively managed with the appropriate treatment. Using a corticosteroid, such as Fluticasone, will inhibit the immune system’s inflammatory response to allergens. This action prevents allergy symptoms from developing.
Unlike other allergy nasal sprays, Flixonase can also relieve eye-related allergy symptoms.
Flixonase nasal spray will take a few days to achieve its full effect. So, if possible, commence treatment a few days prior to coming into contact with allergens.
