Your nose and sinuses can be affected in many ways throughout treatment. From a constantly dripping nose, the loss of nasal hairs, to hayfever-like reactions of sneezing and nasal congestion. The drying effect of treatments can also make your nose dry, crusty and painful. Management of these symptoms can improve your quality of life (and ability to breathe easier!). If you have had sinus surgery or head and neck radiotherapy, Flo™ products can help relieve nasal and sinus symptoms, but always check with your treating medical team first!
For nasal dryness or sinus congestion, a sinus wash with Ringer's Solution, such as Flo™ Sinus Care Kit can be very helpful. Or you may prefer a gentle nasal spray with added minerals, such as Flo™ Saline Plus Spray. This can be used whilst you're on the go, to moisten and remove dry debris in the nose. Something like Flo™ Nozoil can be used inside the nose and around the nostrils for more intensive hydration and to relieve irritation from dryness. We Are Feel Good Inc. Pawpaw Nectar 25mL is also a good option for dryness around the nose (or lip) area.
To improve nasal functioning and immunity, try Flo™ Travel Nasal Spray. It’s a gentle saline spray with added Carrageenan (red seaweed extract) and has been shown to prevent nasal crusting and discomfort AND reduce cold symptoms. Flo Travel is a handy go-to if you’re travelling by plane, on public transport or in drying, air-conditioned environments.
For chronic sinus congestion, or following nasal or sinus surgery, Flo™ Sinus Care Kit and Flo™ CRS Starter Kit are helpful in clearing away mucus, scabs, blood clots or dried blood, but check with your Doctor about using these first.
Flo™ nasal and sinus products are preservative-free. With all Flo™ products, always follow instructions for use. If your symptoms persist, talk to your health professional.
