    Default Those with Sinus involment

    I forgot to mention on my post about the Mayo clinic visit, the ENT gave me some sesam/rose geranium oil that I spray in the nose, it is supposed to be like a lotion for the nose and they said only Mayo prescribes it because their ENT docs came up with the mix. I spray it after I use my nasonex and it is actually pretty soothing and smells nice.
    So if this interests anyone you could ask your doctor about it.

    Why do you use it? What symptom does it help with?

    Do you use nasonex for allergies also?

    The ENT actually just prescribed both while I was there last week. He thinks it may help with the inflammation in my nose. I just have a little crusting in my nose and it is dry. I guess it must look a lot worse then I feel because my sinuses have never hurt or bothered me before.

    I used nasonex for years when the thought was that I had allergies. Since I had my stenosis fixed, it appears that I don't have them anymore (I think they just don't bother me because I can actually breathe again). Just be careful, because it contains steroids as well (says she who now has osteoperosis).

    Jan~
    Yes, they think the steroid nasal spray may help, so we will see.
    You are welcome Elephant, let me know if you need anymore information about it

    I use sesame oil as well Brooke. I wonder what the Rose Geranium mixed in would be like!

    Oh, for Pete's sake. MDs poo-poo the use of remedies like essential oils (used for centuries) and sesame oil (also used for centuries, especially in Ayurvedic medicine) until they find a way to make money of it. They really like to say "We invented it."

    Save yourself cash, time and effort and make it yourself. You can buy all 3 things-- rose geranium essential oil, sesame oil and little spray bottle-- in any health food store.

    It isn't too spendy so I suppose I will just use what they gave me for a while.
