Is it safe to use tonimer balsamic gel (nasal spray decongestant) if taking zoloft, strattera, (atomoxetine) omega 3 & ginko biloba ?

No but: I don't know anything about balsamic gel and presume that it contains vinegar which may irritate your nasal membrane. As for the other medications or supplements, it would be highly unlikely that they interact with anything you use on your nose. ...Read more

Hi i was asking is fouyera clindamycin phosphate gel USP 1% good for nasal acne and my nose is a bit swollen because of the acne?

Yes: While topical Clindamycin is effective for mild acne, it should never be used by itself without benzoyl peroxide. I usually recommend over the counter benzoyl peroxide wash at least 5% in addition to clindamycin. Retinoid products however are essential to a good acne regimen. ...Read more

What causes gel mucus from nose and is there anything i can do to prevent this. This happens every so often.

Hard to discern without a thorough exam. ...Read more

Left nostril i have a cut where the skin is seperated quiet a bit i get very dry nose at work started using nose gel which helps but cut not healing?

Nasal Staph: Greetings. The reason your nose isn't healing is probably due to Staph bacteria causing a nasal vestibulitis. See your doctor for a topical ointment. I usually prescribe Mupiricin with an oral antibiotic. ...Read more

Is it okay to use a bior strip on my nose while using clindamycin phosphate topical gel?

Is it okay to use a bior strip on my nose while using clindamycin phosphate topical gel?

Yes: Biore strips are fun even if they do not have much long term efficacy. Use the biore strip first to remove the excess skin cells and oil in your pores. Then apply the clindamycin, which may possibly penetrate better without all that junk in there! for long term cleaning out the pores, you will want to get a prescription strength retinoid from your dermatologist. ...Read more
