What is Avamys used for?

Avamys reduces inflammatory reactions of the mucous membrane within the nasal passages.

Avamys is prescribed by doctors for allergic rhinitis: a condition in which the patient usually suffers from a runny and / or stuffy nose, sneezing, itching of the nose and / or eyes, watery and / or red eyes.

Allergic rhinitis may be caused by hay fever or allergies to pets, dust mites or certain fungi.

Commonly, the symptoms are seasonal, but some people suffer chronically. Avamys fights the allergic reaction of the nasal mucosa thereby reducing the symptoms of allergic rhinitis.
