The Veramyst my doctor gave me was a sample he received from a salesman. It was the only medicine the doctor gave me for what seemed like a normal cold in early November. By the 19th of January, I am still sick, much worse than before. A month ago the doctor said it might be sinusitis, but still the only thing I took was Veramyst every day, two squirts in each nostril. The mucous membranes in my nostrils are terribly sensitive now and painful. I have suffered from rashes this whole time and never thought that the Veramyst might be causing them. I would never take it again. I believe my immune system has been compromised.
Now I have learned that this is a steroid drug. My doctor never mentioned this fact to me. Steroids are known to reduce your immunity, therefore making you susceptible to not getting better.
Good luck to you.
