Nasal congestion is a common symptom of allergies, hayfever, and respiratory infections. If your nose and sinuses are congested with mucus, it can be very hard to breathe.
Nasal sprays work in several ways. They can be used to deliver a targeted dose of decongestant, which helps to calm inflamed nasal passages and make breathing easier. Corticosteroid nasal sprays are used to control and prevent the symptoms of hayfever and other common allergies.
Saline nasal washes are also clinically proven to clean mucus from nasal passages, reducing infection and increasing airflow. Use a nasal irrigation kit to rinse your nose out before using a medication spray.
