Sinus Rinse Instructions


Sinus rinse (also called irrigation or lavage) is of significant benefit to patients with sinus and allergy problems. We, at Nevada Sinus Relief, recommend the use of hypertonic buffered saline available over the counter such as SinuMed Sinus Cleansing System or a Neil Med Sinus Rinse. The solution gently removes excess or viscous mucus, pollen and other irritants that can cause allergies and swelling of the mucous membranes of the nose and sinuses.

This sinus rinse kit offered at our Las Vegas office is of particular benefit after a sinus procedure such as balloon sinus dilation or endoscopic sinus surgery. The purpose of sinus surgery is to re-establish the opening of the sinuses to restore normal drainage and ventilation. Therefore, these procedures allow for the saline solution to enter previously blocked sinuses and wash out infection, allergic mucus, etc.

Dr. Ashley Sikand recommends rinsing at least 4-5 times a day after sinus surgery and at least 2 times daily as maintenance.  Sometimes medications such as antibiotics or steroid preparations are added to the saline irrigations. Nevada Sinus Relief works with compounding pharmacies to customize this type of treatment, usually used after a procedure has opened obstructed sinuses.
