No, it will not increase your body weight. The reason is that very minute quantities reach the blood when the spray is used.
You have check out and see that no opportunistic infection sets in, which is common after steroid use. That is the immunity of nasal cavity decreases because of steroid spray. This allows some micro-organisms like fungus to spread infection.
