Common Questions and Answers about Sneezing after neti pot


Avatar f tn perhaps you can find one you can work out a payment plan ahead of time. Too bad you can't do Neti Pot on kitties-they work fabulous for people! Best of luck to you!!
Avatar n tn I have had allergies and asthma all my life. When I have a sneezing/hay fever reaction, it's accompanied by the usual itching of palate and eyes, and my medications take care of it. But once or twice a month, I sneeze uncontrollably, hundreds of times, all day long, and nothing, not Allegra-D, not Claritin, not Benadryl, will stop it. And the weird thing is, this sneezing is NOT accompanied by the usual itching. When I have a "sneezing day," I am nonfunctional.
Avatar m tn After visiting with my family doctor, she suggested that I try nasal irrigation such as a Neti Pot. I bought a Neti Pot and have used it a few times now. It seems to help a little but not completely ridding the symtoms 100%. Im wondering how common or likely is it, that one can have a sinus infection of some sort but not be hindered by the other typical allergy symptoms? Also, if I did have sinusitis, would nasal irrigation flush my sinuses out and clear this up?
1439241 tn?1306304111 A saline nasal spray worked well for me to clear the congestion. Seeing as most meds are off the list for us. Some people swear by a Neti Pot to clear their sinuses.. Haven't tried that one yet!
Avatar m tn I was experiencing sneezing and itchy throat along with these but after using flonase I do not experience them any more. However, my nose stays congestion all the time and I can hardly breathe through my nose. My doctor suggested me to take claritin but that doe snot seem to help at all. Only thing that seems to help is the nasal decongestant but I have stopped using it as my doctor said I should not use it regularly. Please Help.
Avatar m tn keep blowing your nose and get a neti pot.
Avatar f tn I have been having sinus pressure in my forehead and it makes my top of my head hurt too and temples , for the past week or so almost and i had that smell it comes and goes after i neti pot to irrigate my sinus. i recently started getting out more green and old blood colored boogers too the last couple days , I was on amox for the first 7 days after my surgery and i finished it. but cold has been going around my house hold for the past three weeks too. I hope i didnt catch infection.
136956 tn?1425609872 Highly recommended: a Neti pot. I have sinus issues too, mostly localized on the left side, and this is the only thing that keeps me sane. I occasionally use a nose spray to dry everything up and enjoy actual AIR for a change, but the Neti pot has been very effective for me and everyone I have told about it has continued to use it. It's basically a warm saline rinse that you pour through one nostril to drain out the other side. Takes a little getting used to but it is very soothing and IT WORKS.
Avatar n tn Try a nasal flush like neti pot or just a kit bought at a drug store. i had this problem for years and it seems to be much better after i discovered this. good luck.
4105678 tn?1356548871 I have been sick almost my whole pregnancy and the one thing I found helped was using a nasal spray or neti pot. If those still don't help I would say go to your doc as they may be able to Gove u something to help.
Avatar m tn The nasal odor is usually caused by an anaerobic bacteria, which usually doesn't cause enough congestion to be detected by an ENT. A neti pot or Neilmed may not work, because gravity limits their effectiveness to the lower sinuses, and the stink seems to come from the upper sinuses.. The only way to flush it out is a Flip-Turn Sinus Flush, which has been effective for many people with this problem.
Avatar f tn In the meantime, try using a nasal rinse such as neti-pot. This will help the stuffiness. An antihistamine could help as well.
Avatar n tn clean your sinuses with NETI POT(NASAL POT). Use lukewarm water + salt. Works great . Consult your doctor about this technique. Here is a pot to buy Tild your head forward and sideways.Breathe through your mouth.Pour it in one nostril and it should come out the other.Not scray at all and very safe. When I did this it cleared up my sinuses! to boost your immune system. These are transfer factor molecules which teach your immune system.
Avatar f tn I have been on a lot of medications for my symptoms- antibiotics,steroids,steroid nasal spray's and zyrtec and all of OTC meds. I have also used a neti pot to flush sinuses, humidifier, hot steam showers and warm wash cloth on my face. I do not have a live outside of my home any more. I have suffer from depression on top of all of my allergies problems. Here is a list of my symptoms from seasonal allergies. 1. pain, tenderness, swelling of the face. 2. nasal obstruction and congestion 3.
1577093 tn?1296717231 (Big Bonus) On a side note, i have been sucking on cogh drops and using a neti pot (it's the only thing that I am trusting right now) and it is helping with my congestion.
Avatar f tn Im thinking it is combo of sinus and stress. Ive been using the neti pot and that seems to help. I can deal with the pressure just not the lightheadedness. It seems lime it gets worse when it rains. I find myself clenching my jaw and teeth as well. I wake up fine but as the day goes on I feel the pressure and the lightheadedness and sneezing. When I wake up there are times when my nose is stuffed up but clears up. When I lay down i feel the pressure in my cheek bones.
Avatar m tn -My solution(temporary solution) every day, is to use a neti pot. After brushing my teeth and washing my face I really need to clear my nose. I have always been this way. Usage of a neti pot allows me to blow my nose, clearing the drainage, and wash away the smell at the same time. Sometimes the smell will come back...and I just use the neti pot again. Sadly, I cant take the neti pot with me everywhere I go...but this is a big improvement in my condition day to day.
Avatar n tn I hit a PR and couldn't even enjoy the moment because of the sneezing and itchy nose afterwards. Neti-pot did nothing for it, Claritin couldn't touch it and until I found you guys I thought I was losing my mind. I ditched the claritin and began taking Flonase, which has helped a lot so far but then again....I haven't tried to run outside since this past Saturday. I have ran on the treadmill twice, each without incident. (thank goodness) but I am terrified to run outside again.
Avatar f tn Also, gave me a sample supply of Singulair to try and said to take this along with the generic Claritin. I am still doing evening saline rinses with a neti pot. Well, if anyone has any other suggestions, please reply. Thanks for your time.
Avatar f tn She suggested the neti pot, but after one use I can tell it doesn't go very high into the sinus, plus the water went into my right ear and it hurts like crazy now :( She doesn't want to see me for SIX WEEKS. My nose boogers might grow together by then. Saw the Endo too, he wants to wait 3 month to recheck my hormones. Seems like a long time too? Bah. I want this to be OVER!
Avatar n tn We try to avoid doing them within 1 hour of bedtime (or lying down), because some of the irrigation fluid drains out later on, and we prefer to be awake and not lying down (when possible), to gently blow the residual warm salt-water out of each nostril. Keep tissues (unscented) handy. (a) First, we each bought a NETI-POT an 8 ounce little ceramic teapot without a cover, from a health food store. Some people who do Yoga use neti-pots (hence the East-Indian sound of NETI-POT).
Avatar f tn I have done the neti pot for a week. Also getting blood when I blow my nose. Any suggestions? I have an appointment with an allergist in 2 weeks(for testing) but I can't go on like this. It is really ruining my life and I am scared it may be something really bad.
1995824 tn?1330382649 Don't think it's the interferon ..... Although not ruling it out. It's back again tonight. On Another note, I dug out my Neti pot tonight and rinsed out my nasal passages. For now, nose feels better. That's my interferon bugaboo I think, runny nose, nasal irritation, bleeding when I blow my nose, and lots of sneezing. Will see what lip is like in am.
492921 tn?1321293496 When I was pregnant I got a head cold twice and only used my neti pot and a warm mist inhaler. I think I will dig that out. K-Bug has a cough she's had for a few weeks but yesterday it got worse. I feel so bad for her.
Avatar f tn All I do is drink warm water with lemon and honey I did some neti pot morning and before bedtime and took a warm bath morning and bedtime.
Avatar dr m tn ● Regular irrigation with nasal saline. There are many options, including a Neti-pot, saline sprays, mists, pumps and squeeze bottles. The key is to find something you’re comfortable with that you’ll use every day. ● Butterbur and stinging nettle extracts are two herbs that have anti-allergy properties. You can find them at any health food store or order them online.
Avatar m tn Having said that I never had any ENT type problems before about 15 years ago. Neti pot no but I use one of those curved plastic bottles. Went to see an ENT about six years ago and he was really brusque, told me I had no polyps but only looked down one side of my nose and it was what I'd describe as the clear side. He said he couldn't see anything. Don't know if what he did was adequate.
Avatar dr m tn Another popular variation is something called a Nedi-pot, which uses gravity to pour salt water into your nose and sinuses. You can either use prepared saline packages, or mix your own recipe (one cup of lukewarm water and 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt or Kosher salt with a pinch of baking soda). Whatever method you use, you'll have to do it frequently to get maximum results. Besides cleansing out mucous, pollutants and allergens, saline also acts as a mild decongestant.
