Multiple Allergies and Medicines Leave Patients With Mixed Messages
Date:11/8/2013

MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nasal allergies serious enough for treatment with corticosteroids require diagnosis and ongoing management by board-certified allergists, according to a recent social media survey of patients and caregivers. Conducted by leading nonprofit patient education group Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics (AANMA), the survey is being presented in scientific sessions at the 70th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI).

People who use or administer corticosteroid nasal sprays to children generally reported having multiple medical conditions and symptoms for which they used multiple prescription and other medications, says Nancy Sander, AANMA founder and survey author. Those whose care came from allergists reported greatest satisfaction with the treatment plan. Nearly all (91.4%) said best outcomes came from seeing a physician; 76.9% choose an allergist.

"Our survey responders were all previously diagnosed and relatively well versed in how to correctly use nasal corticosteroids, but the results show a lot of room for improvement in patient education," says Stanley Fineman, MD, MBA, FACAAI, lead medical investigator for the survey and past president of ACAAI. "It is important to know why you are using an intranasal corticosteroid, when to start and stop using it, how to know if it is meeting treatment expectations, how often to have someone examine the inside of your nose and the reasons why, and how often to have your eyes examined."

"It's not intuitive information or something you know just by reading a label" adds Sander. "You can't do a nasal self-examination at home to see if your nasal tissue is boggy and allergic or sickly like a cold, or if it's infected, deviated or full of sores."

"This study also reinforces that we could all be doing
