I'm useing Vicks nose spray and everytime I use it i start sneezing but it gets rid of my stuffed nose. Why does this happen?

I'm  useing Vicks nose spray and everytime I use it i start sneezing but it gets rid of my  stuffed nose. Why does this happen?

It's an irritant: Any nose spray can make you sneeze, even if it's a prescription. It just means the nose has been stimulated with something it finds a little obnoxious. You don't want to use vick's for longer than 3 to 5 days, it will start to make your nasal tissue swollen. Then you will need to use the Vicks to treat the problem with the vicks. We call this rebound, or rhinitis medicamentosa. ...Read more

My 8 year old daughter has been getting unexplained nose bleeds, sometimes hard to stop. She is healthy and has no other symtom do not know what triggers the nose bleeds. She does not pick her nose.

My 8 year old daughter has been getting unexplained nose bleeds, sometimes hard to stop.  She is healthy and has no other symtom do not know what triggers the nose bleeds.  She does not pick her nose.

Dry nose: She probably has a dry nasal lining and secretly picks her nose sometimes (or blows it hard). The vessels in the nose then get exposed and periodically -for no obvious reason- they can bleed. Use a nasal saline gel like ayr gel 2x a day for a month then nightly as needed. This is usually worse in winter (with heating) or summer (with ac) as everything is drier then. ...Read more

My nose keeps squeaking. I blown my nose and use a nasal spray that my own doc gave me but it still happens.What can I do ?

Other symptoms?: When you blow your nose you change the pressure in your sinuses, and sometimes as that air equalizes you might hear a tiny squeak. It doesn't necessary mean anything's wrong. It could be from blowing your nose too hard. If you've had a cold this could be more common during that time, and should go away as you get better. If it lasts longer than 14 days check for allergies or sinus infection. ...Read more
