Flixonase nasules
I have been using Flixonase nasules for my CRS. I have however read that if you have had previous pulmonary TB, you need to use these under a doctors supervision. What are the risks. My GP has prescribed these for me but has very little knowledge of the side effects etc

It shouldn’t be a problem. It’s local treatment rather than systemic steroids. I normally convert to a nasal steroid spray after 2-4 weeks of nasules.
