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...

Why my doctor asked me to use 1.steroid nasal spray 2.saline nasal spray after septoplasty splint removal. Pls state the usage differences in context.

Steroid v saline. I am not an ENT and don't do septoplasties,but I frequently prescribe both steroid and saline nasal sprays for chronic rhinitis and other nasal problems. Nasal steroids are excellent topical decongestants without problem of rebound congestion, and saline moisturizes and rinses irritants, and some degree of decongestion. In your case, the two should reduce swelling, soften dried blood/prevent bleed. Read more...

If you want a more permanent change in your allergies, you need to consider something like immunotherapy, or allergy shots. However, steroid nasal sprays can usually be taken safely for long periods of time. Read more...
