6 Different Types of Nasal Sprays | Which is Best For You?

There's a lot of

There's a lot of misconceptions about nasal sprays so we're going to try to set the record straight with some basic information today. There are a lot of different types of nasal sprays and they're used for different reasons.

Nasal Decongestant

Nasal Steroid Spray

Nasal Antihistamine Spray

Nasal Atrovent, Ipratropium

Nasal Cromolyn

Saline Nasal Spray

The first category is probably one of the most commonly used and this is a nasal

decongestant spray. These phrase are over-the-counter products and common

ones include Afrin, Sinux and for our Canadian listeners Otravin. These sprays are very popular because they work really well and one of the problems is they work too well.

They give you a very quick relief from nasal congestion and drainage within usually 10 minutes. These sprays are appropriate for short term use that includes when you have a cold or a flu for several days or perhaps an allergy flare-up. What they're not appropriate for is long-term use there are warnings on the bottles that tell you don't use this more than five days. Those warnings are real.

The problem with these sprays is that they can be addictive because they decongest so well and they can actually damage the lining inside the nose if they're used for too long a time.

When the starts to happen the spray will become less effective people will tend to use more of it and at some point it will just totally stop working and you'll be stuck with it badly stuffed nose that you will not get relief from that has damaged tissue.

Nasal Steroid Spray

The next category is spray which is probably the second most commonly used as ones like this which our nasal steroid sprays. There's a lot of different brands such as Flonase, Nasacort Nasonex Rhinocort and these sprays are all similar they all use medications that are steroid based and

they're in the same family of drugs.

There's also generic versions of these that can either be prescription or over-the-counter as well.

Nasal Antihistamine Spray

If you can imagine taking something like a Claritin and putting it into a spray form which you shove up your nose, that's what these sprays do. The upside of them is again they tend to be very safe they have a faster onset than the nasal steroid sprays and usually will have an effect within half an hour.

The downside of them is that they don't work instantly like a decongestant and you probably wait about half an hour to get a good effect.

They often don't have a very good taste so we tell people after using them they should brush their

teeth have some gum etc to kill some of the drainage that gets into the throat.

Nasal Atrovent, Ipratropium

This is a very different type of spray and it really doesn't do much for the congestion or stuffiness but it does help drainage and it's designed for people that have frequent thin watery drainage from the nose.

Nasal Cromolyn

These sprays are not used that often because they need to be used fairly often several times a day and they're not terribly potent. The one upside is that they are generally thought to be safe in pregnancy unlike the other sprays.

Saline Nasal Spray

Saline is just salt water that is balanced to be the same level of salt that's in our bloodstream and tissues. Using plain water in the nose is an irritant. So all the sprays have a certain amount of salt in them.

Saline spray is incredibly safe it can be used in pregnancy in children and in essentially anybody. It has a cleansing action where it helps to keep the nose moist and healthy and remove debris and mucus it also has some effect on the feeling of congestion. It can loosen mucus so you can properly blow your nose and clear out secretions without using too much force.

We hope this was helpful!

Sadly this is of no use to me. It's all about the nose! He did mention mucus which is what i suffer with but nothing to do with the nose? i thought mucus only comes with respiratory problems? That is what i am looking for, but the above good for people with nasal problems, sadly i never have those problems, mine is breathing difficulties. But he made a very good and perfect video because he was thorough.

Excellent video content! Excuse me for chiming in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you considered - Qonnayce Mindful Formula (should be on google have a look)? It is a great one of a kind guide for stamping out your nasal polyps minus the headache. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my friend after many years got astronomical success with it.

Afrin makes one spray called “No Drip” but you can’t use more than 4 days....It doesn’t leave you with nasty taste....

I am so frustrated that I had been pumping all those pills as well as tablets that did not do heck for my polyps. And now I simply used this nasal polyps treatment “Vοzαnzο Tvο” (Google it) and applied some dietary changes and the polyps are gone once and for all! I`m very pleased that I found this product through my own research. .

My doctor told me to bend at a 90 degree angle and to point toward the ear. He said I have a lot of swelling but no infection and it could take about a month to get it under control. That's what been causing my fullness and a weak sense of smell.

I'm trying to help my 7 year old use a flixonase nasal spray. If he lies on his back on the bed with his head hanging over the side will the spray reach the correct place?

Miss_B Hello

James Biehl

When you mention the nose going straight back, you could reference that diagram you have behind you.

I know EXACTLY what it’s like to suffer from HALITOSIS, otherwise known as bad breath. I work as a Counselor, and therefore a large part of my job involves speaking to people face-to-face. This had never been a problem for me up until around 6 years ago.

At 26, and without warning, my breath began its rapid descent towards face-melting foulness, and there seemed to be very little I could do about it… Nor did there seem to be any reason, obvious or otherwise, as to why this was happening to me. Firstly, I started to notice that people were beginning to stand quite far away from me when I spoke. I mentioned this to my girlfriend, who discovered an incredibly effective remedy for my bad breath from a herbalist doctor called Dr Aloma from African. Will contact him on [email protected]gmail.com, He prepared some remedy and send it to me through UPS Courier Service and it was 100% safe and natural! Just after three days (3) taking the medicine as directed by him i began to see some good change , my breath was noticeably fresher and cleaner – and more importantly, now i am cured, all thanks to God. my “Dragon Breath” hasn’t returned since... I have learned that he has remedy which cures the following condition also


Tooth Decay

Bad Breath

Gum (Periodontal) Disease

Oral Cancer

Mouth Sores

Tooth Erosion

Tooth Sensitivity

Toothaches and Dental Emergencies

Unattractive Smile

Whiten teeth, etc

If you are suffering from any of the above tooth conditions, contact Dr Aloma via email([email protected]) or call him +2348069525913..

Fortunately I found this nasal polyps treatment method “Vοzαnzο Tvο” (Google it), and that I instantly started out seeing advancements. In a few days my polyps were obviously shrinking and also the head aches and stuffy nose were long gone.

Хочу поделиться свидетельством того, как крем на основе трав доктора Абили спасает меня от стыда и позора, мой пенис был для меня большой проблемой, так как его размер был действительно таким неудобным, и у меня также была слабая проблема с эрекцией. Я не могу заниматься любовью с женой, а мой пенис был слишком маленьким для взрослого мужчины, как у меня, с пенисом 4 дюйма, и, что еще хуже, я не выдерживаю в сексе, я не могу даже последние две минуты, это было действительно стыдно мне. Моя жена действительно устала от меня, потому что моя сексуальная жизнь была очень плохой, она никогда не получала удовольствия от секса, я всегда думал и искал решения повсюду, пока не увидел свидетельство того, как крем на основе травяной смеси доктора Абили помогал людям в отношении их пола. жизни, поэтому я решил дать ему попробовать и, к моему величайшему удивлению, менее чем за неделю приема трав мой пенис вырос до 11 дюймов, я не мог поверить своим глазам, и когда я говорю сейчас, мой пенис теперь 11 дюймов, и я нет снова недельной эрекции. Я могу дольше заниматься любовью с женой в постели. И мой брак сейчас стабильный, моя жена теперь очень хорошо наслаждается мной в постели. Вы можете связаться с ним по электронной почте [email protected]gmail.com, позвонить или что-нибудь добавить через +2349034412845.

What if the inflamation is on the septim? I had polyps or turbinites (my doctors can't agree) in the septum. I thought I was therefore supposed to apply to spray directly onto that...? Please help with this
