I just started using the Flonase and had nasal pain for a couple of days and then it went away and my sinuses felt great. But now I think I caught my childs cold, should I stop using the Flonase until I am sure it is a cold and then wait till the colds gone to begin again with the Flonase?

A cold can cause inflammation of the nasal passages and then bacteria gets blocked in which can then become a sinus infection.
I use flonase when I have a cold or upper respiratory infection to prevent it from going into a sinus infection. I have been able to reduce my sinus infections tremendously.
Make sure to clean your flonase top piece so you don't get any infections from bacterial growth.
