in my opinion regular treatment in form of nasal drops I.e. xylometazoline nasal drop causes rhinitis medicamentosa. if it's saline nasal drops you should not worry as it's natural, you can use Saline as long as you want. I don't think it damages bone. you can use drops continuously for 5 days then take a drug free gap of 2-3 days.
