Does Fluticasone have a steroid in it?

Yes, fluticasone is a corticosteroid. It works by reducing inflammatory reactions in the airways in response to allergens and irritants in the air.

It is available as a nasal spray for people who have congestion due to allergies, and as an inhalation for control of asthma. Steroids may take awhile to take effect, so it is important to take the medication as directed by the physician, not just when you the symptoms are the very worst.

Because fluticasone is given nasally or by inhalation, it is not expected to have all the side effects of taking oral steroids. If you are using the fluticasone inhaler, it is good to rinse your mouth out with water, so that you won't get side effects in that area.
