Nose spray with steroids

The majority of side effects from topical steroids occur within the nose at the site of local application. These side effects commonly include nasal irritation and nose bleeds . Should these symptoms occur, a person should stop using the nasal steroid for a few days, and then re-start the medication using the appropriate technique . If bleeding and irritation continue to occur, the nasal steroid should not be used any longer. A person who continues to use a nasal steroid despite these local side effects is at risk for septal perforation .
