How does this medication work?

The nasal spray is made of a synthetic corticosteroid that binds very strongly to the glucocorticoid receptor. It is also thought to inhibit cytosolic phospholipase A2, which tries to control the biosynthesis of powerful inflammation mediators like prostaglandins and leukotrienes. This reduces inflammation.
