Discussions that mention nasalcrom

Allergies board


Astelin contains a preservative which can irritate the soft tissue in the sinuses. So does nasalcrom and most otc saline sprays. I get nosebleeds from Astelin, and it didn't do much for me anyway.

Chlor-Tremiton 12hour works much, much better. Take Sudafed at night as a decongestant.

Thanks for the advice! I'm glad i'm not the only one this happened to :) Can sudafed be taken for long periods of time?
