Steroid nasal: sprays can help to decongest and reduce inflammation with enlarged turbinates in the nasal passage. They are not meant to be used long term, just like oxymetazoline (Afrin) sprays are not meant to be used for >2 days. I would not use steroid nasal spray for more than 2 days as well. ...Read more
Is it safe to use carrageenan/kappa- carrageenan nasal spray daily for long term? Are these sprays like decongestant nasal sprays?

Decongestant spray: Do not use any over the counter decongestant nasal spray more than 3 days, they are very addictive and you can end up with worse symptoms than you have now. You can use a saline nasal wash ad lib, no problems with that. But you should really get a prescription nasal spray for long term use that does not carry the side effects of otc sprays, see your doctor. ...Read more
