Patients with rhinitis, in the treatment of rhinitis will be the first choice of drug treatment, the use of nasal spray is a good drug to relieve rhinitis, so how should we use nasal spray?

Correct way to use the nasal spray: keep the natural head position (without looking up), use your right hand to put the nozzle of the nasal spray into the left nostril, the nozzle direction towards the outside of the left nasal cavity, keep the bottle basically upright, do not tilt too much. A well-designed nasal spray is a diffuse mist that doesn't have to go all the way into the nasal cavity, just in the front nostril. Do not point the nozzle to the inside of the nasal cavity to avoid spraying on the nasal septum. Avoiding the nasal septum prevents the force of the impact from causing nosebleed, and also prevents the spray from directly hitting the nasopharynx causing irritation. In the lateral direction, mucous membrane is abundant in the attachment area of the upper, middle and lower turbinates, with good absorption and minimal irritation. Inhale gently through your nose, press the vial with your right finger and spray it 1-2 times. Press while gently inhaling through the nose and exhaling through the mouth. Switch the nasal spray to your left hand and place the nozzle of the nasal spray into your right nostril with your left hand. The nozzle direction is toward the outside of your right nasal cavity. Inhale gently through your nose, press the vial with your left finger and spray it 1-2 times.
