Re: [IP] Re: Thrush



Melanie,

A spacer device is used with asthma inhalers to help get more medication
down in the lungs.  It looks like a big plastic cylinder with a mouthpiece
on one end and a place for the inhaler to go into the device on the other
end.  If you use an inhaler without a spacer/holding chamber, a good portion
of the med is sprayed in the mouth or the back of the throat.

You are okay with a nasal steriod like Flonase.
