Face and sinus issues. in Sclero Forums (MAIN) Posted November 3, 2018 I take beconase ( beclometasone dipropionate) for my sinus issues. They occurred long before my SSc was diagnosed, but I get the feeling that they may be related. My general practitioner originally diagnosed Rhinitis, hence the beconase prescription. It does help though, but most of my pain is in my ears. Apparently, the build up in the tubes from my nose to my inner ears is putting pressure on my eardrums. Several other brands of cortisoid nasal sprays may of course be equally effective.
