Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The spray you used previously contained the active substance Momethasone furoate. This drug is useful in minimizing the symptoms of inflammation of the respiratory tract, including due to allergic rhinitis, bronchial asthma, vasomotor rhinitis, and so on. Not all smell disorders are caused by inflammation. For this reason, it is highly discouraged to use this drug before the cause of your complaint has been identified. Moreover, this drug is not included in the free drug category, so its use must be carried out under a doctor's supervision.
Smell disturbances, or in the medical realm known as anosmia / hyposmia, can be caused by the following factors:
Aging (usually over 60 years of age) Rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal mucosa), either due to allergies or non-allergies Sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities) Nasal polyps (benign tumors) Deviation of the nasal septum (oblique lining of the nasal cavity) Side effects of drugs or radiotherapy (for example, antibiotics, antidepressants, anti-inflammatory drugs, heart drugs, cocaine) Exposure to toxins, for example pesticides, solvent Nerve injuries to the nose or head, for example due to head injury Suffering from certain diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, malnutrition, hormonal disorders, and so on. Try to get your wife to have her complaint checked with an ENT specialist so you can find out what kind of treatment is best for dealing with it. Usually, not only interviews and physical examinations, the doctor will also direct your wife to undergo further tests, for example nasal endoscopy, CT scan, MRI, and so on. The treatment will be adjusted to the cause of the illness.
Hope this helps ..
