Nasal Saline: For dry nasal mucosa nasal saline can be helpful particularly as we move into the drier months of the year. Also, one should review the medications they are using to make sure nasal dryness is not one of the side effects.

What is the difference between the nasal and oral medications for allergies?

Risk/benefit ratio: In general, nasal medicines are more effective with less risk of side effects. This is partly because they are applied only to the area that is a problem, the nose. However, some people don't like nasal sprays, and teaching is needed to use them most effectively. Oral medicines are quick and easy, but the medicine goes throughout the body, even to places it's not needed.

Yes: The symptoms of nasal allergies include sneezing, itching, runny nose, nasal congestion and often itchy, watery eyes. The nasal congestion can lead to a nasal tone to the voice. Anything that causes nasal congestion and/or obstruction could lead to a nasal voice.
