Recently, the FDA approved Qnsal, a “dry” aerosol nasal spray corticosteroid that elminates the wet, drippy feeling that often accompanies traditional nasal allergy sprays. Qnsal is especially effective at treating allergic rhinitis, which often manifests as runny nose, sneezing, and watery eyes. Many people who suffer from allergic rhinitis are dissatisfied with current means of treatment and are now able to obtain this new alternative treatment by prescription.

Recommended for adults and children 12 years of age and older, Qnsal has limited side effects, including headache and nosebleed. Corticosteriods are not to be taken lightly, though, as they can affect immune response and slow wound healing. If you are suffering  from seasonal allergies, first consider slightly altering your lifestyle to reduce your exposure to springtime allergens.  If that doesn’t work, the next step would be to see your ENT specialist, who will be able to test you for specific allergies and go over the various treatment options with you. Call the office or stop in to make an appointment. Make sure to let us know if you’re currently taking any allergy medications.
