Mometasone containing nasal sprays are other options.
Thank you doctor. I would like to know is there any ayurveda treatment available for allergic rhinitis? Because I do not want to use steroids as it has worse side effects in long-term use. Please suggest.
There are no side effects with topical Corticosteroids. You can start using Metaspray (Mometasone) one puff in each nostril in the morning after breakfast. If the spray reaches your throat, you should not swallow, just spit it out.
The only precaution is using it in proper way. Use your left hand to spray in right nostril and vice versa. With proper usage, no side effects will occur.
You can try ayurveda too. But results will take longer time and not guaranteed always.
In allopathy, any result will be visible within three weeks so that you can modify your treatment accordingly.
Ultimately, treatment of allergy is getting away from the possible allergens. Stay away from the dust, smoke, other possible allergens you think of such as cold exposure, some food products, etc.
