Beconase Aqueous Nasal Spray

I'd heard it was good for bloody noses but I had no idea it could help with congestion.


Vicks Sinex Decongestant Capsules

How am I supposed to swallow that whole bottle?

That nasal spray shiat has severely diminishing returns.  First use works great, but it's effectiveness lessens after every dose.  Not only that, but after you stop using it you have a day where your congestion is even worse than before as your sinuses try to rebalance.

Or at least that's my experience.

No. OKAY? I'm not just going to just let the snot run down my f*cking face like I don't notice a thing.

You don't blow your nose so that you get less sick, you blow it so that you can farking BREATHE.

RminusQ: You don't blow your nose so that you get less sick, you blow it so that you can farking BREATHE.


And to keep from having snot all over your face.

That said, I use a sinus irrigator for snot removal, and it is AWESOME.  If I do that before bed when I have a cold, I can actually breathe most of the night.

Fine Ill just let the snot dribble all over everything leaving a snail trail of germs everywhere I go.

Heh. I was visiting a friend the other night and her cat started a sneezing fit. By the time it was done it had a string of snot like 4 inches long dangling out of its nostril. It just ate it.

But how else can I truly enjoy my Awesomely Outrageous Southwestern Pizza Flingers at Chili's if I don't repeatedly, loudly and copiously harvest throat oysters despite being surrounded by tables full of diners? You don't expect me to get up and *walk* twenty feet to the men's room, do you?

If you don't clear your nose it can become impacted and develop secondary infections that can lead to bacterial infections in the sinus, blood and brain as well as massive blood loss. It IS possible to bleed to death through your nose.


NEVER believe shiat you read at news sites.

Mine works fine. But if I use it for over a month or so, I start getting nosebleeds. Unfortunately cedar season here in Austin lasts around 2 months.

I recommend the children's Afrin. Much lower dose but same efficacy, less chance of the rebound effect.

Pour boiling water into my nose? What is this? Some kind of Spanish Inquisition cold remedy?

Anything tasty dipped in any good horseradish sauce works for me. My schnoz can be totally stopped up and that'll unstop me every time.

Yeah, the key part of "and let it cool down" was humorsly missing!

Well gosh, Daily Fail, I supposed I really didn't need all that oxygen today. After all, you seem to do fairly well with diminished O2 levels to the brain.

I don't seem to have diminishing returns, but my issue is that it seems to wear off two hours before I can take another dose (according to the directions). So I get to sit around in misery for a few hours because if I try to take it before the directions say, it seems to kill my sinuses.
 
2013-01-15 07:07:27 AM
I just go out and get some sushi. A good chunk of wasabi clears up the most stubborn sinuses.

Did you read the same article I did? They didn't say don't blow, just blow lightly so you're not blasting some of that diseased snot up higher into the sinuses. I got the same advice from an Ear Nose & Throat specialist MD 20 years ago. Blowing lightly for a runny nose or to clear a bit of snot is OK. Blasting a snot rocket like you're trying to hit someone across the room - not OK.

You'd think an ear, nose, and throat specialist would know more about ears, noses and throats. For instance, not all of them are as straight as Ted Haggard on the pulpit and coated with Teflon.

Some of them look more like this:

A "light blow" isn't going to accomplish much, genius.

Or you can just dilute the regular strength with a few drops of saline nasal spray. Over the course of a few days you keep adding more and more saline until you can just stop without the rebound.

Ugh, Neti Pots. I always feel like I'm trying to waterboard myself.


And fark nasal sprays, they always send me into sneezing fits. Warm showers do much better for my congestion even if it is possibly a placebo effect. I'll go with what works thank you very much. That and, you know, sudafed. The REAL sudafed, not that phenylphedrine bullshiat. Even if I do have to go to the freakin' counter and demand through a stuffed nose "As much as you are legally allowed to sell me right now, here's my state ID."

Before they changed the recipie, Spicy Chex Mix was my weapon of choice for congestion. Now they have changed it from having a great flavor to just heat. I now reach for whatever Jalepeno chips I can find. Not as fun but effective.

I also can't get the Neti pot to work but I suspect it's because I'm
