Cargeoma or others, regarding the steroids,

Would that include Nasonex spray too? Since it’s a steroid (milder and for sinuses).
Wonder if the experts feel that this type suppresses immune system? and are they
reluctant to prescribe them for Mac’rs? I used to take it, because of sinus
seasonal drippyness or stuffyness, but quit when I found out about MAC as I
was worried about immune suppression. I also thought that having been on it
contributed to my becoming susceptible to getting MAC in the first place. My
drs. were uncertain either way, but they are not experts on MAC anyhow.
