What do doctors typically recommend for people with nasal allergies?

ANSWER

Doctors often recommend nasal steroid sprays for treatment of nasal allergies. These drugs decrease inflammation within the nasal passages, thereby relieving nasal symptoms.

They're available over the counter or by prescription. Flonase, Nasacort, and Rhinocort are available over the counter. Examples of prescription steroid nasal sprays include Beconase, Dymista, Nasarel, Nasonex, Qnasl, Vancenase, Veramyst, and Zetonna.

People who are allergic to any components of these nasal sprays shouldn't use them.
