About Flocare AZ Nasal Spray 70 MDI

Flocare AZ Nasal Spray 70 MDI is used to treat allergic symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, congestion, stuffy nose or watery eyes. An allergy is a condition that occurs when the immune system reacts to a foreign substance that is typically not harmful to your body. These foreign substances are known as 'allergens.' Allergic condition varies from person to person. Some might be allergic to certain foods, pollen or pet dander. 

Flocare AZ Nasal Spray 70 MDI combines two drugs: Fluticasone furoate (corticosteroid) and Azelastine (antihistamine/antiallergic).
