Recently my doctor recommended I use saline nose spray after I told him I was concerned about using Afrin and would not use it any more. I bought Simply Saline which does not have all of the chemicals in it that others have.
I have noticed that with on and off use of it for the last two months that it seems to make my mucus drier when I blow my nose and causes some blood to come out. I remember another doctor I saw in the emergency room when getting a nasal cauterization four months ago had told me that saline can actually *cause* nose bleeds?
Has anyone else had this happen or heard anything? If it is true, I will have to quit using that as well.
