Beconase Aqueous Nasal Spray is an effective medicine which is used to relieve the symptoms and allergies caused by hay fever. It helps you feel less congested by tackling symptoms such as sinus discomfort, red and watery eyes, runny or itchy nose, sneezing, etc. It contains the active ingredient beclometasone dipropionate, which is a corticosteroid.
Beconase Aqueous Nasal Spray is used to treat the symptoms and allergies that are caused by allergic rhinitis or hay fever. These could be once-in-a-while allergies such as those caused by dust or pollen particles in the air, or perennial allergies such as animal allergies.

Relief from a blocked, itchy or runny nose
Relief from sinus discomfort
Relief from headache
Relief from itchy or watery eyes
