After using walgrees saline nasal spray, i still have sinus pressure. Should i switch to afrin nasal spray? I didn't really use the nasal spray often.
Stay away from Afrin (oxymetazoline): Sorry about using brand names but you really want to stay from afrin, neosynephrine (phenylephrine) & similar products.

I even use it myself and my nose always feels great. Helps keep the nose moist, too. ...Read more

Yes: Saline nasal sprays help to keep your nose moist, which prevents bleeding. If your nasal polyp starts to bleed after use, stop.
