Nasarel is used for treating common nasal allergy symptoms, such as sneezing, itching, nasal congestion, and runny nose. It comes in the form of a nasal spray that can be used by both adults and children as young as six years old. Healthcare providers may occasionally recommend off-label Nasarel uses, such as for the treatment of non-allergic rhinitis and nasal polyps.
Nasarel™ (flunisolide nasal solution) is a prescription nasal spray approved for the treatment of nasal allergy symptoms in adults and children age six and older. Nasarel belongs to a group of medications known as nasal corticosteroids.
Allergies are the immune system's specific reaction to normally harmless substances, such as pollens, certain foods, or medicines. Allergies can either be seasonal or perennial. Seasonal allergies (such as hay fever) occur at specific times of the year, while perennial allergies can occur throughout the year. Allergies can affect various parts of the body, and allergy symptoms are particularly common in the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. Nasal allergies (also known as allergic rhinitis) mostly affect the nose and eyes. Symptoms may include:
- Nasal congestion
- Runny nose
- Itching nose, eyes, ears, or throat.
Combined with strategies to minimize a person's contact with allergens, allergy treatment can make life bearable for even the worst allergy sufferer. Treatment often includes allergy shots or medications. Nasarel is a particularly useful allergy medicine for treating allergy symptoms that primarily affect the nose, and can be used to treat both perennial allergies and seasonal allergies.
