How to Use Nasal Sprays Effectively Featured

Nasal sprays are available in pressurized canisters and pump bottles. The effects of the spray may be visible within two weeks of its use. Saline nasal spray therapy is generally un-medicated, but medicated sprays are also available. The main purpose of the spray is to moisturize the nostrils and the cilia. Properly moistened cilia, thus, can perform its function of flushing out mucus and bacteria easily. The saline spray is simple and effective method to clear out the sinuses and nose congestion. The spray can also be used for infants and children. Since no medication is added to these sprays, it is safe. The spray is affordable. However, effects of the spray are short-lived.  To maximize the benefits of nasal sprays, consider the following tips:


  • Clean the nose before using the nasal spray.
  • You should be able to sniff before using the spray. If you are unable to sniff, medicine will be released deep into the nose, causing irritation. 
  • Exhale slowly and move the head in proper position. If using the bottle, tilt the head forward. If using the canister, keep head upright.  If the spray drips down the throat’s back or from the nose, the spray container was not in proper position.
  • Shake the bottle or canister prior to spraying. Adjust the canister to ensure it is firmly placed in the holder.
  • If you have bought the pump bottle spray, squirt it until a spray of mist is released before using it.
  • Avoid blowing your nose or sneezing immediately after spraying. 
  • Clean the canister spray regularly.
  • Follow the physician’s prescription. Read the instruction on medicine and spray package.
  • Do not store the nasal spray under sunlight.
  • Do not use the spray up to two days, if you have stinging feeling in the nose, nosebleed has started or the spray is hurting the nose.
  • Nasal steroid sprays are mainly used for chronic sinusitis treatment. Some sprays are also used for acute conditions. The spray helps in reducing nose congestion and sinus inflammation. However, these sprays are not a permanent cure. Generally, the symptoms will return after stopping the application of the spray. The long-term use of the spray may cause dryness, itching, irritation and burning inside the throat and nose. It may also trigger nosebleeds, headaches and sneezing.
  • Nasal saline spray is an over-the-counter medication. The saline used in the spray increases moisture level, facilitating removal of infection. The saline sprays are non-addictive.
