Nasal Sprays

Sprays are used after pack removal. Saline spray is used to aid cleaning of the inside of the nose after surgery. One or two sprays are directed into each nostril as frequently as required, perhaps six times a day. The nose can be gently blown and wiped with a tissue. The mucus inside the nose can also be kept moist by placement of a gauze beneath the nostrils. The gauze becomes moistened and acts as a humidifier for the inspired air as it passes through on inspiration.

Nozoil is vitamin E oil in the form of drops or spray that protects tissue and also helps to maintain moisture inside the nose. It effectively reduces crusting and may be used as often as needed.
