I am new to this forum. I seek your advice on Sinusitis and whether nasal sprays are effective in combating Sinusitis.

I am 65 years old and help my husband manage his roofing business. I sometime visit construction sites where there is dust all around. Despite working for so many years in this industry, it is only recently that my sinus has started acting up.

On my doctor’s suggestion, I have been using a Neti-pot. I find it very useful. Unfortunately it is not very convenient to use. I cannot use it in the office and on the site. I want to start using a nasal spray, but am worried about the content and drugs that go into it.

Can someone please explain how nasal sprays work, what are the ingredients, how do they provide relief……. and if you could share the name of an effective nasal spray.

Thank you.
