Avamys nasal spray is a popular corticosteroid medication for seasonal allergic rhinitis in Malaysia.
You can purchase Avamys in most pharmacy in Malaysia without the need of a doctor’s prescription.
Avamys is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline and distributed in Malaysia by Zuellig Pharma.
The active ingredient in Avamys is fluticasone furoate, a type of corticosteroid.
Avamys was introduced to me by a pediatrician for my eldest daughter.
At one time, my daughter had the issue of stuffed nose.
Usually, her nose will be fully or partially blocked at night.
Because of her blocked nose, she was unable to breath properly therefore disturbing her sleep.
My daughter will keep waking up in the middle of the night because she was unable to breath.
Constant waking up from her sleep made her feeling tired and drowsy in the morning.
I remembered a couple of times where my eldest daughter had to miss school because she was not feeling well in the morning due to her blocked nose.
Because of her condition, I had to bring her to the pediatrician for consultation.
The doctor told me my daughter’s condition could be due to her sensitive nose which caused her to have an allergic reaction.
Her symptoms such as blocked nose, sneezing, watery eyes, coughing etc are common to a condition known as allergic rhinitis.
One of the medication recommended by the doctor to relieve her blocked nose was Avamys.
I bought the Avamys nasal spray from a pharmacy near my house. I used it for my daughter’s blocked nose as recommended.
To be honest, it does help to clear and unblock her nose.
I am grateful that the medication managed to relieve my daughter’s allergy rhinitis.
However, as a mother, it bothers me a bit that I had to use steroid to help relieve my daughter’s allergy.
Is there a better alternative?
Is there a natural remedy?
I have thought about it. Using Avamys nasal spray only tackle the sypmtoms of my daughter’s allergy.
Why did the allergy happened in the first place?
I remembered, the pediatrician told me my daughter’s allergy reaction could have been trigger by dust mites in the sofa or her bed.
During rainy season, due to the humid surrounding, the dust mites rise to the surface of the sofa and bed.
That could have exacerbated my daughter’s allergy.
I wanted to know why my eldest daughter is allergic to dust mites and my second daughter is not.
From my research on the internet, allergic rhinitis is caused by our over-active immune system.
For my daughter, when she was exposed to allergen, in her case the dust mites, her immune system over-reacted and caused the symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, stuffy nose, coughing etc.
Is there a way to calm down her immune system when she is exposed to allergen?
The good news is, I found a type functional food from Japan which could do that.
Back in January 2019, I was introduced to the product.
The key benefits of the product is help to regulate our immune system.
For a person with over-active immune system, taking it could calm it down.
I wanted to know the product could help with my eldest daughter’s allergy rhinitis.
I have been giving 1 sachet each to both my daughters since January 2019.
I am happy to say that until today, there has not been any sign of her allergy reoccurring.
As a mother, I am glad I’ve found an alternative to using steroid nasal spray.
It has been a blessing to me and my family.
