Question
Hi.  I was giving my son dexa rhinaspray once in his nose. He sneezed afterwards and some may have gotten in my eye. Should I be worried?

Answer
Hi Anta, I am unfamiliar with the medicine, but I looked it up and if it was a brief and minimal exposure that didn't hurt the eye, I would not worry.  See his doctor if it seemed to badly irritate the eye and the eye did not calm down.
