Post-tonsillectomy: You can use Chloraseptic spray after tonsillectomy, but it usually provides limited, short term relief. Talk to your surgeon about his/her preferences.

Besides that, take whatever pain Rx your doctor recommended. ...Read more

Can you use chloraseptic spray after having your tonsils removed to help with the pain?

Not necessay: Following a tonsillectomy, a septic crust covers the surgically exposed tonsillar fossa or raw area that is exposed to the outside air. Inasmuch as the oral cavity is not sterile, the patient's normal immune response is all that is necessary to heal the raw surface. I would think that chloraseptic would cause more burning. However it would be safe to use. ...Read more

When spraying Flonase in nostrils is it normal for it to feel like a little went in throat or am I spraying too high up? Should I spray lower? Thanks!

Use the finger of your other hand to close off your other nostril. Spraying toward the septum or straight up can cause the medication to be swallowed.

Is it safe to spray throat anesthetic into your nose or is there a anesthetic spray for the nose? Thanks.

Caution: Most throat anesthetics contain a local anesthetic (la) that is absorbed by the mucous membranes. There are more mucous membranes in the nasal passages, so there can be an increased amount of la absorbed into the blood stream, and so more side effects. I would suggest talking to your local doctor to discuss your needs. ...Read more
