    Hello!
    Triamcinolone spray and flonase are both allergy medications classified under corticosteroids drugs. Both are used to treat symptoms of allergic rhinitis, wherein there is an inflammation of the lining of the nose. However, they contain different active ingredient. This product contains triamcinolone while flonase contains fluticasone.

    Triamcinolone nasal spray may be used in children as young as 2 years of age while those to be treated with flonase must be 4 years and older. Flonase also has a higher risk of drug interactions. It interacts with HIV drugs.
