How can I relieve stuffiness when flying?
Jill Grimes, MD, Family Medicine, answeredOver-the-counter products such as nose sprays like Afrin can help relieve a stuffy head, nose, or ears if you need to fly. Make sure to put it in ziplock bag for security, but then use it when you are seated on the plane to reduce ear discomfort upon takeoff. Gum, mints, or any beverage will help clear your ears as well.
What are mucous membranes?
Mucous membranes are tissues that line body cavities or canals such as the throat, nose, mouth, urethra, rectum and vagina. Mucous membranes produce a thick, slippery liquid called mucus that protects the membranes and keeps them moist.
