What are the benefits of using a saline nose spray?

Dr. Andrea Pennington, MD
Integrative Medicine
Consider using a sterile saline nose spray two to three times each day to wash the nasal passages. Many people find that with seasonal allergies their nasal passages are clogged or drippy. And as the winter air becomes more dry and offices and homes turn on central heating, the nasal passages become dry and cracked. Many people have allergies to dusts and molds that come on in the fall and winter. Using a nasal wash helps to keep the nose moist and washes away irritants.
