Beclometasone belongs to a group of medications known as corticosteroids. These are used to help prevent and treat symptoms of hay fever, and nasal allergies that occur throughout the year from pet or dust allergies.
Corticosteroids are hormones that are produced naturally by the adrenal glands that have a number of important functions, such as anti-inflammatory responses. Beclometasone acts as a synthetic corticosteroid and is applied via a nasal spray to reduce inflammation in the nasal passage.
Once applied to the nasal passage, Beclometasone is then absorbed by the cells of the nasal lining. It then stops these cells releasing chemicals that trigger allergic and inflammation reactions. This relieves symptoms such as a blocked or a runny nose, sneezing and sinus discomfort. It can also help relieve symptoms associated with the eyes such as itchy, red and watery eyes.
It can take time for cells to absorb corticosteroid, so it is not an instant relief from symptoms of nasal congestion.
Allergies occur when the body’s immune system tries to defend the body from a particular allergen as though it is harmful, such as pollen, bee venom or pet dander.
Your body will produce antibodies which identify a particular allergen as harmful, even though it isn’t and try to attack it. This then causes the symptoms of allergies such as the blocked or a runny nose, coughs, sneezes, dry or red eyes etc.
The effect of allergies can vary from person to person and can range from minor to harmful, such as anaphylaxis; a potentially life-threating emergency. Fortunately, there is a wide range of treatments for allergic reactions.
