About Flixonase Fluticasone Nasal Spray

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.

What is Flixonase?

It is referred to as a steroid nasal spray for cold-like symptoms caused by allergic rhinitis. This is an infection, swelling or itching of the inside of your nose caused due to hay fever.

How Does Flixonase Work?

Flixonase aqueous nasal spray includes corticosteroid fluticasone propionate, which is a type of medicine called a corticosteroid. Corticosteroids are a type of hormones that adrenal glands generate naturally. These hormones perform many significant functions including regulation of inflammatory reactions and responses. Flixonase is a manufactured corticosteroid added into a nasal spray to control inflammation in the nasal passages (rhinitis).

When applied into the nose, the cells in the nasal lining absorb the Flixonase, which regulates cells and stops the release of substances that cause allergic and inflammatory reactions. It alleviates symptoms such as continuous sneezing, clogged or runny nose and severe sinus trouble. Flixonase is also helpful for treating eye redness, swelling, itching or inflammation.
