I have been to ENT and he told me to use bacitracin with a cue tip so I did that for months, didn't stop the problem so now I'm using Rhinaris gel and am really getting relief since yesterday so we'll see, thankyou!
I started a question listed several years ago about Using Tramadol for rhinitis (nasal congestion ). So far 18 people have written back saying that tramadol really does work for rhinitis. Tramadol is a pain medicine but it seems to work very effectively for nasal congestion.
Having nose burn? I got you! try some of these things
- Get a soft tissue, fill it with cold water, then stick it up your nose and breath out of your mouth. Make sure when you take the tissue out, you blow your nose, because if you did it right, then it should be better! also this might make you sneezy, but that gets the mucus out easily!
- Get a cuetip, but some cold water on it, then put it on the side that hurts. rub it around and in, then you get a tissue, put some cold water on it, then put it on your nostrils and blow slowly, carefully, but firmly.
- Lastly, you can get an actifed, and drink it with some sprite, twist up, ginger-ale, and cold water for best results but you can drink it with any drink if you'd like.
Hope this helps, I know I am late but this is for newcomers. feel better and see y'all again!
You are blowing your nose so much that it's making it burn. Try staying away from blowing your nose and wiping it for about a week or 2 if this does not help its bad allergies and you need to go to the doctor. Don't worry no shots just drops. You may also have medicine
Hi. Am on oxygen therapy so clogged nasal is a big deal. The ocean spray works well and really helps. It doesn't hurt or burn. Most allergy sprays hurt for me.
I do think a visit to the doc is also a good idea. There can be all kinds of weird stuff in the nose. Infection sounds like the best possibility because of bleeding. Left untreated you can erode the nasal chamber and mess up your nose, even severally damage it. (With oxygen, at high levels it does erode in the nose and is very serious.) Infection does this. Perhaps you had a bug fly in or something like a polyp is growing. Please have it looked at and use the saline spray until you can get in to a doctor. It softens the dried mucous and reduces eroding the nose. Don't pick it. Finger nails are nasty germ factories. They spread infection quickly and scratch the inner nose.
There is also a product called Ayres which you gently place with a cuetip. Do not use Vaseline! It clogs the nose and increase an infection possibility.
Have you ever tried the nasal spray Ocean Mist? It's not a medication, but a saline spray. I always get the generic store version as it's always cheaper and the same as the name brand. It's wonderful for thinning out the mucous and keeping your nose moisturized which helps with the burning sensation. By thinning the mucous and moisturizing the nasal passage, you should be able to clean your nose out without making it bleed. I hope this helps you!
I get this all.of.the.time! I am on a couple allergy medications (sprays) that work 80% of the time. Here is the kicker... My allergy test (and we did an extensive one!), showed NO allergies of any kind. None even a little.
What I think, for ME, I get sinus infections :( and it happens on my left side (you would be amazed at the amount of mucus after a couple doses of Flonaze does!! Seriously). It's like a huge block, you can feel the block unfolding.
It also affects my left ear, a lot! And if I do not treat it, I will get a migraine. :( So I would check with a doctor... have them do some lab work and a CT, see if it is allergies or something else.
You may need to consult your Dr to be sure that you do not have a secondary bacterial infection. This can happen when allergy symptoms go on for a while.
It could be allergy related especially if you have had it for some time. Do you suffer from any other allergy symptoms such as sneezing or itchy eyes?
Have you tried an oral decongestant tablet or a decongestant nasal spray? These are helpful for short term use only. If your symptoms are persisting talk with your doctor or pharmacist who may advise you to try an antihistamine tablet or a steroid nasal spray.
