Yes, Seretide contains Fluticasone which is a corticosteroid. Corticosteroids taken over time can stunt growth in children. Zyrtec is safe to take for allergies and should not stunt growth but Nasonex also has a corticosteroid which can. If he stills needs a nasal spray, you can ask the doctor about Astelin which is steroid free.
