Allergies usually change every seven years they are cyclical in nature I know I used to be allergic to everything but now just cats and grass, But people should be tested every 2 to years or so depending on your doctor I personally do not like meds.

Ahhh, preteen girls, they are wonderful, aren't they?! Mine is 17 now and the drama continues... lol Oh, but I love it and it keeps life very interesting indeed!
Here's a site that will tell you more about the Nasonex-my daughter did use that for a while and is now on Flonase. I've never heard of having a rebound effect from these types of nasal inhalors-the ones OTC can cause that problem. Was there a reason she would stop it for any amount of time?-they're usually used year round, I thought?-and yes, it does contain a steroid.
PS I corrected the spelling of Allergy in the title. :) Teri
Sherry, here's a link to read about the steroids used for asthma, including corticosteroids. As they mention, most steroids used for asthma are usually used for short term use, unlike in some situations. But they all have their side effects!! I guess we can not get away from that.
Though the inhaled corticosteroids are more localized and don't seem to cause as many side effects.
