Answer

Nasal Sprays

Nasal saline spray and steam inhalation help by moistening dry secretions, reducing mucosal edema, and reducing mucus viscosity. The symptomatic relief gained in some patients can be substantial; moreover, these are benign modalities of therapy.

Saline nasal spray (Ayr, Ocean Nasal Spray, Nasal Moist)

Saline nasal sprays loosen mucus secretions to help remove mucus from the nose and sinuses.
