Why do you have to rinse your mouth after using an inhaled steroid?
My asthma doctor put me on an inhaled steroid yesterday. Two puffs twice a day but he told me I have to either brush my teeth or rinse my mouth after. Why?

Your mouth just used after an inhaled steroid? You can't be serious. Someone involved here must have a serious issue to sort out

To avoid thrush. Inhaled steroids (of the corticosteroid type) are immunosuppressive by nature, and can allow candidiasis to occur in the mouth (fungal infection). It is important to get the steroid substance out of the mouth.

Because the coating of steriods in your mouth can promote a yeast infection in your mouth called thrush and then, you would need medication to treat that. Follow your doctor's advice carefully and you won't have to worry about this.

Corticosteroids act as immunosuppressants, ie they dampen down your immune system. Hence why they are used in inflammatory conditions.

Most of the dose you inhale gets deposited en route to your lungs in your mouth and throat where it will stay until you swallow it mixed with your saliva. If you are using an aerosol inhaler a spacer device significantly improves drug delivery to the lungs and reduces deposition in the throat. This is especially important if technique is poor. See British Thoracic Society Guidelines.

You rinse and spit out water after taking your inhaler to do two things:
1. Avoid getting oral candida (thrush fungus). Why? Because the local immunosuppressant effects of the steroids if they stay in your mouth can allow an over growth of natural flora and fauna that are normally kept in check by our immune system.

2. Reduce the amount of drug swallowed that may contribute to systemic side effects of steroids. Please note that this part was more important in the past as modern inhaled steroids (eg fluticasone) have close to 100% destruction after one pass through the liver after being absorbed into the blood, ie, they are not around long enough to cause side effects. But, better safe than sorry.
