Health Tip: Using a Nasal Spray

(HealthDay News) -- Using a nasal spray can help ease congestion, but it's important to use the spray properly.

The American Academy of Family Physicians offers this advice:

  • Use the spray as directed by your doctor, and allow two weeks or more to gain the full benefit.

  • Store the spray away from direct sunlight, and keep any pressurized container clean.

  • Make sure you are able to breathe through each nostril before spraying, otherwise the spray may not be effective.

  • Point the spray toward the back of your nose. A pump spray should not drip down the back of the throat or out the nose.

  • Stop using the spray for one to two days if you have nosebleeds, pain or stinging inside the nose. Try an over-the-counter saline nasal spray before using a medicated spray.

  • If nosebleeds persist, use only a saline spray, or apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly inside the nose. Speak with your doctor if problems continue.

Similar to global positioning systems, image-guided surgery systems provide real-time images that can help the surgeon navigate inside the sinuses for precise removal of diseased tissue while avoiding critical areas.
