Sinusitis and Nasal Sprays
Effect of Nasal Sprays on Sinusitis
Some doctors recommend a nasal irrigation device and warm salt solution to wash out your sinuses and nasal passages. Check with your doctor to see if she recommends a particular device. Nasal irrigation is most often used in the management of chronic sinusitis. There is some evidence that it may be helpful and little to suggest that it is harmful.
