Sinus Pressure & Nasal Congestion FAQs

What are common causes of nasal congestion?

The original cause can be anything from cold or flu to allergies or sinusitis. The membranes surrounding your nasal passages can become irritated and inflamed. The stuffy nose you are feeling is caused by this swelling, as well as the thick mucus that is stuck in your narrowed nasal passages. 

How do sinus rinse kits clear out my congestion & sinus pressure?

Sinus rinsing can remove dust, pollen and other debris, as well as help to loosen thick mucus. It can also help relieve nasal symptoms of sinus infections, allergies, colds and flu. Plain water can irritate your nose. The saline allows the water to pass through delicate nasal membranes with little or no burning or irritation. FDA Article 

How do sinus kits clear out allergens & irritants?

Rinsing out your sinuses with salt water can provide relief by washing away mucus and other irritants (like pollen, dust and bacteria) and reduce inflammation of the mucous membrane, resulting in better drainage. This can be done with a Sinus Rinse Kit. When using a nasal rinse, be sure to use sterile or previously boiled water, and rinse and dry the device thoroughly after each use.
