Fluid in the ears and a blocked ear canal. I have been prescribed pseudoephredrine tablets and a xylo-comod nasal spray. Is this correct? Hopi candle?

Fluid in the ears and a blocked ear canal. I have been prescribed pseudoephredrine tablets and a xylo-comod nasal spray. Is this correct? Hopi candle?

Limit use of spray: Pseudoephedrine safely helps decongest the tissues around the eustachian tube to help drain the middle ear. But the nasal spray can be addictive, causing the tissues in your nose to swell worse when you stop. Use it for a MAX of 3 days. A nasal steroid spray can help (without being addictive). Candling doesn't help with middle ear issues, and if your canal is blocked with wax, get a lavage. ...Read more

I'm taking beconase steriod spray for a nasal infection can I still use sudafed nasal spray at the same time?

Yes: Beconase is a topical steroid and as such is not used for an infection but for allergy or non-allergy inflammation. It has little systemic absorption and there fore you can use sudafed as well. But sudafed is a tablet and I am not sure it is a nasal spray. But its mode of action is totally different than Beconase and you can use it. It sounds like you have nasal allergy so allergy visit next. ...Read more

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.
