This is Dr. David

usually fluticasone (Flonase) steroid nasal sprays don't have to be weaned when you need to stop it.

however, long term steroid nasal sprays can suppress your immune system in your throat

and can increase risks for throat candada fungal throat infections which can cause sore throat

you should have a doctor look down your throat

there are antifungal mouth washes like Nystatin mouth washes and antifungal clotrimazole prescription throat lozenges which can kill fungal infections in your throat which could help your symptoms.

talk to your doctor about this possibility of having a throat fungal infection.

let me know if you have other questions.

if done for now, please leave positive rating of 3-5 stars so I can get credit for helping you today

we only get credit for helping clients after positive feedback

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
