My nose is stuffed. So I took a bulb syringe with a solution of warm water and some salt and squeezed it up my nose. Doing this is ok right?
OK! This is an effective treatment for nasal congestion. It is usually less uncomfortable to add a little baking soda to the salt water. Otc single-use pre-mixed packets of salt are available, as well as dosing syringes / neti-pot / etc. You may use this as often as desired (even 2 or 3 times a day) without major side effects. One good brand is neilmed sinus rinse (i am not a paid to endorse!).
Should be OK. As long as the syringe was clean... If you are that stuffy. It might be allergy or a sinus infection... You can continue to irrigate but you should be checked by your primary care doc if it persists.
Yes, likely to help. You have done nasal irrigation, used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries & growing in popularity in the US, with proven benefits for allergies & chronic sinus problems. It is best to use 1/2 tsp salt & 1/2 tsp baking soda in 8 ounces of warm filtered water. See http://altmedicine. About. Com/cs/allergiesasthma/a/sinusirrigation. Htm & http://www. Fammed. Wisc.

Nasal irrigation. Nasal irrigation is safe and effective. If you add 1/4 t o 1/2 teaspoon of pure sodium chloride (no additives) and 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda (not baking powder) to 8 ounces of body temperature water, you are creating a solution compatible with your nasal passages. The water should be distilled or previously boiled and allowed to cool to body temperature. Can use bulb or neti-pot or generic.
