Nasonex steroid nose spray

I am suffering every day with Dry nose..when i wake in the morning i had a terrible headache, throbbing and i feel sick...my nose is tight and dry inside and congested, and i feel like i have a temperature...sometimes there will be a popping in my sinuses and it will slowly clear and moisturise, but most of the time not. i dont want to get nasal meds from my GP because they dry my nose too...out of desperation i have been using a nasal irrigation bottle and its very good once you get the hang of it, but i wish i could find a nasal moisturiser as i think my problem is exascerbated by central heating or the use of a fan to keep the room cool....also i find some saline wash drops make my nose dry because of the salt content.

Thank you for sharing your insights Dr Wei. Like Kerry Kitchen, my 5yo constantly has runny and crusty nose and is the only one in class to the point she is starting to feel conscious. She does not have milk before bed and hardly have snacks between in the evenings or even during the day ie there is the occasional biscuit and cookies but I try as far as possible to give her fresh food. I have been advised to do a hearing test (she can hear the slightest whisper I make) but seems to have difficulty concentrating in school (too young?). I have been told there could be ear infection or fluid in her ears…it all sounds scary but I do not know what else to do.

Dear T,
Sorry to hear about your son’s struggles. It sounds like you’re doing all the right things. For kids with chronic rhinitis and chronic cough, I am suspicious of reflux (GER/GERD) as a contributing factor. Take a look at the articles on this site for that topic. Regarding the precise amount of Manuka honey to use, it ends up being about a tablespoon for an 8-oz bottle of saline. Manuka honey may help reduce inflammation, studies have found that Manuka contains both a strong anti-microbial, and strong anti-inflammatory agents … worth a try.
Please let us know how it goes, and thanks for visiting.

A total of 1008 patients aged 12 years and older received NASONEX Nasal Spray 50 mcg 200 mcg/day (n=506) or placebo (n=502) for 15 days. Adverse events that occurred more frequently in patients treated with NASONEX Nasal Spray 50 mcg than in patients with the placebo included sinus headache (% in NASONEX Nasal Spray 50 mcg group vs. % in placebo) and epistaxis (1% in NASONEX Nasal Spray 50 mcg group vs. % in placebo) and the overall adverse event profile was similar to that observed in the other allergic rhinitis trials.
