For several years I've been on a nasal steroid. I was taken off of them for several months because I developed some very nasty sores in my nose from them.


Back before Christmas my allergist put me back on them, because I felt so stuffy all the time. It's very difficult to breath with a stuffy nose on a CPAP. smhair



Now I've started getting the same symptoms I had before: itchy nose, bloody blows, and more stuffiness. I guess I need to go off of them again and save it only for emergencies. nono



I didn't use it today and my nose is very runny and sensitive. mad



Does anyone know a non-steroid solution to help me? confused

My daughter's allergist told her to use a Saline nasal spray in addition to her steroid nose spray. If you get one that has a moisturizer in it, it might help. You can also use it several times a day. Also too, to help protect your nose you can try using vaseline just on the inside of your nose.

I went off the nasal spray and I started using nasal strips to open my nose at night to breath. It seems to be working for me.

Sinus Rescue (made by Peaceful Mountain) has proven very helpful for my nose - I was sneezing, had a runny/stuffy nose for weeks despite inhaling Pulmicort (nebulizer solution) up my nose. After my first couple doses of the Sinus Rescue, the sneezing, runny/stuffy nose thing stopped and I could finally breathe again. I got mine at a local health food store. I have no financial connections with the company who makes this product. I've heard others say good things about this product as well.

Take care,
