Steroid nasal sprays useful for treating sinusitisSteroid sprays such as Rhinocort, Flonase, and Nasonex are commonly used to treat patients affected with sinusitis but the use of these sprays is yet to be accepted on a universal basis.

It is important to note here that sinusitis is an inflammation of the mucous membranes that tends to affect nearly 37 million people in the United States alone.

The review appeared in an issue of The Cochrane Library, which is a publication of The Cochrane Collaboration, an international organization that evaluates research in all aspects of health care.

Review finds sinusitis symptoms can be treated with steroid nasal spraysSinusitis is an inflammation of the mucous membranes that tends to affect nearly 37 million people in the United States alone. Steroid sprays such as Rhinocort, Flonase, and Nasonex are often recommended by medical practitioners for treating this condition. But the use of steroid-based sprays is still not universally accepted.

The review appeared in an issue of The Cochrane Library, which is a publication of The Cochrane Collaboration, an international organization that evaluates research in all aspects of health care.

Two of the concerned studies examined patients at treatment centers in the United States; one took place in Turkey and the other included 71 medical centers in 14 countries.

Steroid Nasal spray and antibiotic therapy effective for acute sinusitisAccording to a recently published review, more than 37 million Americans suffer from nasal congestion, sinus pressure, cough and postnasal drip that accompany sinusitis.

Though doctors prescribe antibiotics for relieving acute sinusitis but that may develop following a chest cold, a combination of steroid nasal spray and antibiotic therapy is the best option when it comes to easing symptoms and speedy recovery, as per researchers from Israel.

Sinusitis is an inflammation of the mucous membranes that is lined between the sinus cavities. Doctors usually prescribe steroid sprays like Nasonex, Flonase, and Rhinocort for treating chronic sinusitis and allergies symptoms.

It was remarked that 73 percent of patients treated with nasal steroids gained relief or significant improvement of symptoms compared with only 66.4 percent of patients receiving placebo during the study period.

Steroid Medications Reduce Nasal PolypsNasal polyps are non cancerous growths occurring in the nose or sinuses. The exact cause of nasal polyps is unknown, but some people are more susceptible than others. Polyps are harmless, but the presence of a large one, or several small ones, can obstruct the airway of the nose, make breathing difficult and impair the sense of smell. Nasal polyps also cause nasal obstruction and may block the pathways where the sinuses drain into the nose.

Medical management to reduce the size of the polyps often requires a series of steroid pills and nasal steroid sprays. Since the nasal steroid sprays have very little absorption into the blood stream, there are few, if any, side effects. Nasal polyps may be removed by a minor operation under a local anesthetic. Unfortunately, in some people they may recur, sometimes several years after surgery. Surgical removal can be repeated if necessary, and using a nasal steroid spray regularly might sometimes help prevent them coming back.
