How Does Mometasone Nasal Spray Work?

Allergies occur when the body's immune system reacts to a normally harmless substance -- one that does not bother most people. These immune system reactions are known as inflammations and involve several different types of cells and several different chemicals in the body.
 
Mometasone nasal spray is a corticosteroid, or simply "steroid" for short. Steroids can have many different effects in the body, including anti-inflammatory effects. Steroids decrease inflammation by limiting the body's ability to produce an immune system reaction. They can be very effective for treating conditions such as allergies.
 
However, long-term use of steroids can cause bothersome and sometimes serious side effects, and this limits the usefulness of many steroids. Because mometasone nasal spray is a nasal spray, its effects are generally limited to the nose. This helps prevent many of the long-term side effects of steroids.
 
Many cases of nasal polyps are related to chronic inflammation caused by nasal allergies. Mometasone nasal spray works to treat nasal polyps by decreasing inflammation.
