Corticosteroids nasal spray (OTC) for treatment of Common Cold in Children with cold

  • -  Tooltip icon - Capsule icon


    Bottom Line

  • Treatment with Corticosteroids nose spray. Only 1 valid study conducted, with 100 children. Unclear effectiveness due to high risk of bias in the trial. Seems safe, but long term usage and higher than the recommended dosage may delay children's' growth.

    • -  Evidence icon EVIDENCE | POORLY TESTED
    • -  Effectiveness icon EFFECTIVENESS | UNCLEAR
    • -  Safety Circle icon SAFETY | MILD RISKS


Do not use this treatment:

There is no evidence that it is effective in relieving runny nose, stuffy nose, cough and sneezing, or in shortening their duration. Side effects seem minor.
