Hi,

'If you have one or more small polyps, your doctor is likely to prescribe a corticosteroid nasal spray such as fluticasone (Flonase), triamcinolone (Nasacort), budesonide (Rhinocort), flunisolide (Nasarel) or mometasone (Nasonex). These medications relieve inflammation, increase nasal airflow and may help shrink polyps.'

'Treatment for nasal polyps may also involve surgery. When medications aren't effective, your doctor may recommend removing your polyps. This is often the only option for people with cystic fibrosis who usually don't respond to steroids. The type of operation depends on the size, number and location of the polyps. Options for nasal polyps surgery include: polypectomy and endoscopic nasal sinus surgery'.
