Nasonex nasal spray can effectively treat and prevent the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. Nasonex effectively treats both seasonal and year-round allergies. Nasonex contains the active ingredient Mometasone furoate, which is a corticosteroid. Corticosteroids, such as Mometasone have anti-inflammatory properties. Nasonex nasal spray can also treat nasal polyps; these are growths that develop at the nose alongside other allergy symptoms.
It is estimated that around 20% of people in The UK suffer from allergic rhinitis. The condition is caused by an overactive immune system, whereby it mistakenly reacts to allergens in the same way that it would an infection. As a result, when harmless allergens enter the nose, the body overreacts and starts to produce extra mucus. This will lead to symptoms, such as sneezing, congestion, and a runny nose.
