    I have rhinitis and nasal polyps which if left alone get that bad that my nose is blocked and i cant breath through my nose at all. I have to take a nasal spray everyday ive had an allergy test and it was all negative so I don't know whats causing the inflammation and polyps. It all started last year anyway for some unknown reason. But yea im wondering if you are called up is it possible to carry a nasal spray with you if you are in hiding and all that? Or am I just being daft? I guess its only like asthmatics using an inhaler everyday but I dont know if people with asthma are accepted.

    ...why not ask the army?

    I'd suggest talking to your local AFCO or for a fast answer maybe post in the Armed Forces section of this forum.

    p.s. no your not allowed an inhaler.
