Cand these cortisone sprays cause yeast infection in the nose or sinuses. I am prone to thrush because of a dry mouth and have been on Nasacort AQ for 3 days. Nose feels sort of burny altho I can breathe better. Had a sinus infection and swollen glands 2 months ago and took 250 Ceclor for 10 days (can't take a higher dose because of Crohn's and allergic to most antibiotics) and PCP won't give me any more even though it never really cleared up. My glands went down but the headace and stuffy (and sometimes runny with the stuffy??) nose never goes away and steaming my head and the vaporizer does nothing to loosen it up. I had been using saline spray but nothing happened. I need 2 upper teeth pulled with roots in the sinuses and afraid to get them out with my sinuses this way. HELP.

Don't want yeast either as I am allergic to all antifungals except Nystatin and I get my allergies from overuse of drugs. Thanks.
