2nd opinion: I presumed you have had a workup by an allergist who has instructed you on the proper technique on the nasal spray and you have followed the instructions on avoidance measures. Have you tried Dymista or singulair (montelukast) yet? And yes, hormone can affect nasal congestion being most evident in some women during pregnancy. I would seek a 2nd opinion from another allergist if symptoms remain uncontrolled. ...Read more

Bad luck: But hope still, saline nasal washes would do as good if used consistently, till you get evaluated preferably by an allergist, check aaaai.org or acaai.org for an allergist in your area, good luck ...Read more

Can I use xlear nasal spray whilst I am using beconase steroid nasal spray . Am suffering chronic sinusitis due to concha bullosa :(?

Can I use xlear nasal spray whilst I am using beconase steroid nasal spray . Am suffering chronic sinusitis due to concha bullosa :(?

Yes: Beconase (beclomethasone) is an intranasal steroid to suppress the inflammation in your nose and the xlear is likely a decongestant. Are you seeing an ent? If not, you might want to get those concha bullosas removed or at least consider balloon angioplasty. I would also recommend increasing the Beconase (beclomethasone) to 2 sprays to each nostril twice daily for 2 weeks. ...Read more

I use an nasal spray 3-4 times for 5 days because I had stuffy nose caused by sinusitis. Now it's like I have "ciggarette addiction"? How to stop this

I use an nasal spray 3-4 times for 5 days because I had stuffy nose caused by sinusitis. Now it's like I have "ciggarette addiction"? How to stop this

Rebound congestion: Over the counter nasal decongestant sprays (Rhinocort Aq being an exception) can cause troubling rebound congestion and should only be used sparingly for a very short period of time. Recovery involves complete discontinuation of the spray, and waiting for the tissues of the nose to return to normal. Hopefully one of our ENT doctors will chime in if there are prescriptions available to help! ...Read more
