Over the last four years, I’ve taken two courses of BEG spray – got re-infected after the initial treatment. I herxed mildly (flu symptoms) about three days after starting the spray and it lasted a few days. The spray did sting a bit at first (keep in the refrigerator to reduce stinging) and my nose was very runny the entire time – the result of the biofilm breaking down . Also, there was a slight increase in the ringing in my ears during treatment and near the end of the six weeks I was hit with a wall of super intense joint and muscle pain. I attributed the pain to toxins released by an excess of “bad” microbes (excess yeast and fungi) resulting from the killing off bacteria in my gut with the antibiotics.
We included five studies (663 participants with nasal polyps ), three using mometasone furoate (400 µg versus 200 µg in adults and older children, 200 µg versus 100 µg in younger children) and two using fluticasone propionate drops (800 µg versus 400 µg). We found low quality evidence relating to disease severity and nasal polyps size, with results from the high-dose and low-dose groups being similar. Although all studies reported more improvement in polyp score in the high-dose group, the significance of this is unclear due to the small size of the improvements.
