I thought i read it is a steroid or similar to one.

Is it ok to use when you have lyme disease?

Who knows...I got permanent eye damage from a mild steroid cream that I wasn't even using around my eyes.

This was before Lyme.

I think for something topical or nasal, it's very individual.

Some say NO... others are able to get away with it.

I know TF had a bad experience with it. I seem to do OK .. I only take it when desperate.

It and other nasal steroid sprays can weaken the immune system. Look them up on the Internet and see how they warn you not to go around sick people, those with measles, etc.

After using such a spray daily for about 1-2 months, I began catching every illness that was going around.

So, I stopped the nasal spray and my health returned to normal.

Now, I only use such sprays when my allergies are causing life to be unbearable. And, I only use them for a very short time.

Some lyme doctors allow their patients to use these sprays.

Here is an example of a website that says the spray can weaken your immune sytem:

Breathing Thieves essential oil blend clears out my sinuses quickly.

Allergies: Applying Copaiba oil to my body (anywhere) once a day is as good as taking Claritin for the allergy relief it gives me...

And I find taking thyme & fenugreek orally to be very helpful for thinning mucus and keeping the sinus symptoms to a minimum.

I believe I have a fungal sinus infection and have been treating it with a Ray Tube machine. The herbs kept me able to breathe for a long time, and now I'm trying to get at the root cause.

YMMV.
