Do nasal sprays help with sinusitis?


Nasal sprays help provide temporary relief from nasal congestion. Your doctor might recommend using one to relieve symptoms along with medication. Overuse of nasal decongestants can prove counter-productive and make you feel more congested, hence your doctor would recommend using them for not more than 2-3 days. Nasal decongestants are available both as sprays and pills, they work by reducing the amount of mucus produced.
