The Clucker

Why Nasacort®?

Maria's inflamed nasal passages and congestion, combined with the itchiness in her nose, has stopped her from the activity she loves: practicing yoga. She is self-conscious of the "clucking" sound she makes with her tongue as a result of these symptoms. In the past, Maria considered another INS but did not like its floral scent.

According to the latest medical guidelines, her allergic rhinitis symptoms are moderate to severe. Nasacort® Allergy 24HR is a scent-free OTC INS that can help reduce these troublesome nasal symptoms, including nasal congestion.

The Dripper

Why Nasacort®?

Although Mark begins sneezing and develops a runny nose during allergy season, these symptoms don't interfere with his day-to-day life. According to the latest guidelines, Mark's symptoms are classified as mild, because they don't interrupt his work, sleep, or other important daily activities.

However, he could still benefit from treatment. An INS, like Nasacort® Allergy 24HR could help control his sneezing and rhinorrhea. But since Mark's symptoms are mild, he could also be a good candidate for oral antihistamines like Allegra® Allergy.

Symptoms

Why Nasacort®?

Liam's inflamed nasal passages and congestion, combined with the itchiness in his nose, makes life tough for him and his parents. Because Liam is only 2 years old, he struggles to blow his nose without help and can often be heard sniffling. Liam’s parents tried treating his symptoms with an antihistamine with limited success. They are looking for a more effective treatment for Liam that does not include alcohol, which could irritate his sensitive nose.

According to the latest medical guidelines, his allergic rhinitis symptoms are moderate to severe. Nasacort® Allergy 24HR can help reduce Liam’s troublesome nasal symptoms, including nasal congestion—it’s approved for children as young as 2 and does not contain any alcohol.

Nasacort® is recommended for daily use, but adult supervision is required. Please consult with your physician if your child needs to use Nasacort® for more than 2 months.
