    Question on the nasal spray XLear

    I have been using the all natural nose spray XLear for my allergies. Has anyone who have used it, ever experience nose bleeds with it? It does burn a bit but I just thought that was normal. Anyway when I spit, (not all the time) I see a tiny twinge of blood when I spit out the drainage or mucus. Like I said not every time I spit, but some of the times. I thought it was coming from my throat, but when I blew my nose, I saw blood there so I'm assuming the burning caused the nose to bleed? Or could it be polyps? Having a hard time getting allergies under control. I do have left ear pressure and have had that off and on for over a month. ENT Dr said he didn't see anything in node or throat, but he has been wrong with me before. Any thoughts?

    Hi YES!

    I'm so GLAD this post exists!

    In April, I had a TERRIBLE sinus infection so I ended up pumping Xclear Max strength in my nostrils to get some relief because NOTHING wasn't working.

    After day 2 or so, I started feeling like the inner walls of my nose were super dry and whenever I'd blow my nose, blood would come out.

    I ended up googling the #1 active ingredient in Xclear and it's Capsicum Annuum, which is actually a chili plant!

    We were shooting chili juice up our noses! No wonder!

    Since then, I've woken up with clear scabs and feeling like I need to put vaseline in my nose to make it feel hydrated.

    I just shined my cell phone light up my left nostril and saw two things...

    1. a small gash on the inner wall
    2. lots of redness and almost what looks like a popped blood vessel! It looks like it's on the verge of a nosebleed if I just touch it the wrong way!

    "Note: You may experience a burning sensation associated with capsicum - that is normal."

    Yes, it burns, but I didn't think it'd do permanent damage or take 2+ more months to heal.

    I still wake up to scabs on the inside of my nose and it's painful to clear out.

    Did this happen to you too?

    Thanks for your posting!

    Have you tried a plain saline spray?
