ALLERGY MEDICATIONS EXPLAINED

Based on symptoms, some allergy sufferers might need a different treatment than others. Here’s our helpful guide on the different types of allergy treatments. To help you understand what might be right for you

Rhinocort Intranasal Spray in Use

Intranasal Corticosteroids

Typical Form: Nasal spray

Use: A great option for relieving nasal congestion and reducing inflammation around the nose and sinuses.

Nasal decongestants

Decongestants

Typical Forms: Nasal spray, pill, and liquid

Use: The champion of shrinking swollen membranes, decongestants are used to alleviate both nasal and sinus congestion.

Antihistamines

Antihistamines

Typical Forms: Tablets, liquids, nasal sprays, and eye drops

Use: Tablets and liquids are great to provide broad spectrum relief of allergy symptoms like sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, runny nose, itchy nose or throat and itchy skin. Antihistamine nasal sprays and eye drops target specific localised symptoms, such as your nasal symptoms or watery itchy eyes. They work by blocking histamines — compounds released by the body in response to an allergen.
