How Do You Use The Saline Nasal Spray?

Jul. 20, 2022

Whether it's a cold, allergies, or just dry air, a stuffy nose can stop you in your tracks and make your day miserable. There are many different over-the-counter treatment options that can help relieve nasal congestion symptoms, but if you want to minimize the use of medications, the saline nasal spray is a good option.


Saline nasal sprays are an effective way to temporarily relieve nasal congestion, but how do saline nasal sprays work?


What is the saline nasal spray?

People looking for relief from nasal congestion can choose from three different types of nasal sprays: saline nasal spray, decongestant nasal spray, and steroid nasal spray. Saline nasal sprays are made from salt water and do not contain any medications. These nasal sprays can be purchased over the counter without a prescription or can be made at home.


Saline nasal sprays work by moisturizing the nose, dissolving and loosening mucus in the nasal passages, and adding moisture to the nasal passages to prevent them from becoming more inflamed, and preventing the nasal passages from becoming dry.


In addition, most decongestant nasal sprays should not be used in young children and should be used in children 6 to 12 years of age under adult supervision and under the direction of their pediatrician.

How does saline nasal spray work?

Saline nasal sprays improve the symptoms associated with nasal congestion in a number of ways.


  • First, the saline nasal spray helps minimize your risk of getting sick by flushing foreign invaders such as viruses, irritants, and allergens from your nasal passages before they have a chance to trigger an immune response.

  • Second, the saline nasal spray can help improve the effectiveness of medicated nasal sprays when they are first used because it increases the water content in the nasal passages, making them more receptive to medication.

  • Third, saline nasal sprays help to clean and moisturize the lining of the nasal passages, which is important for maintaining a strong nasal immune response.

  • Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the saline nasal spray helps reduce the symptoms and discomfort of nasal and sinus congestion by diluting excess mucus in the nose and sinuses when you feel uncomfortable.


How do you use the saline nasal spray?

Using a saline nasal spray is very simple and can be done by anyone, including children.


If possible, blow your nose first to remove as much of the nasal blockage as possible. If you are helping a child who does not know how to blow his nose, you can skip this step.

Remove the cap from the bottle, then prepare the spray for use by following any instructions on the label.

Close one nostril by gently pressing your finger on the side of the nostril. Place the spray bottle under the open nostril, then place your thumb on the bottom of the spray bottle.

Next, squeeze the spray bottle as you inhale to draw the salt solution into the nostril.

If directions are indicated, repeat and then switch sides.

Try to avoid blowing your nose immediately after using the spray, and avoid sneezing if possible. Allow time for the salt solution to loosen and thin the mucus before blowing your nose to relieve congestion.
