In recent years, the incidence of allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, chronic rhinitis, and sicca rhinitis has increased year by year, which has increasingly affected everyone's daily life:
"Ah tweeted, ah tweeted, ah tweeted", allergic rhinitis committed again;
In winter, the nasal cavity is dry and the dry nose increases. I can't help but want to pick my nose;
After eating hot pot a few times, the nasal mucosa was bleeding and erosion;
The child caught a cold right after going to kindergarten and had a long runny nose;
Sitting in the office and blowing on the air conditioner, my nose is blocked...
There are many kinds of medications for nasal diseases. As a non-drug treatment, nasal irrigation can relieve symptoms to a great extent and improve the efficacy of medication.
Although this method alone is difficult to cure the disease, because it conforms to the physiological characteristics of the nasal cavity, it is a milder way of daily nasal cavity health care and is easily accepted by everyone.
So how do we choose the appropriate flushing method? How to perform nasal irrigation for different groups of people? Is there any harm in long-term nasal washing? Let's take a look today!
Do the correct cleaning and nursing of the nasal cavity
Your nose will be more comfortable
Standard and proper nasal cavity flushing can clean allergens, inflammatory secretions and irritating particles attached to the nose, reduce nasal mucosal sensitivity, edema and inflammation; at the same time, it can also improve the oscillating function of mucociliary and improve the nasal cavity. Cleanliness, promotes the integrity of the mucosal barrier.
In short, it's like doing a "health spa" for your overwhelmed nose.
Many friends use salt to wash their noses with salt water at home, but the nose is often more uncomfortable, mostly due to poor control of the concentration. Generally speaking, we should choose isotonic saline (0.9%), hypertonic saline (2% to 3%) or isotonic/hypertonic saline to flush the nasal cavity.
Only by correctly choosing appropriate and safe nasal washing methods, nasal washing supplies, and standardizing operations can they play the role of adjuvant treatment.
