What is a peroxide sinus wash, and when is it needed?

Saline Instead: Patients should start with saline sinus rinses. This is the best type of rinse one can do at home. I have treated countless patients and not needed to recommend peroxide sinus rinse. It can be used in some patients but it should only be done with who are being followed by an ENT who recommends it. Dont try at home otherwise. Peroxide can be very irritating the lining of the nasal passages. ...Read more

Flonase+xlear+sinus wash has been helping a lot, but recently i've been experiencing congestion, could this be caused by the meds? suggestions?

Nasal congestion : You may still need an over the counter decongestant like pseudo ephedrine (sudafed), take one to two tablets every 6 hours as needed. Avoid Neosynephrine nasal spray as it may cause a rebound effect if used for more than 3 days at a time- that means your congestion will worsen. The nasal sprays you are using do not cause this effect. ...Read more

Eustachian tube: Connects the ear to the nose. The rinse and air pressure went up the canal. This caused tension on ear drum. The fluid should drain back to nose. If ear still hurting, see doctor. ...Read more

If I do a nasal wash daily will it help with my sinus pressure?

If I do a nasal wash daily will it help with my sinus pressure?

Nasal wash: Hello, my patients who suffer with chronic or recurrent acute sinusitis and use a regular sinus rinse find their symptoms to be better controlled. Sinus pressure is related to a narrowing of the sinus outflow pathways. Afrin nasal spray used twice a day followed by the sinus rinse may work even better. If the symptoms persist despite these maneuvers, then a visit to your ENT may be helpful. ...Read more

I heard a cold/sinus inf. can be prevented or shortened by putting a bit hydrogen peroxide in ears.That dangerous? Effective? How should I apply it?

I heard a cold/sinus inf. can be prevented or shortened by putting a bit hydrogen peroxide in  ears.That dangerous? Effective? How should I apply it?

No: Hydrogen peroxide in the ear canals may be effective for wax removal, however has nothing to do with a cold or sinus infection. The ear drum (tympanic membrane) separates the ear canal from the middle ear and eustachian tube, unless there is a hole in the ear drum. Remember, you can "spray the front window of the house with a hose, the people in the living room won't get wet." ...Read more
