Nasal irrigation

What is Nasal irrigation?

Nasal irrigation is the practice of flushing the nose and the sinus spaces around it with warm saline solution. This is done to clear out mucus, moisturize the nose, and improve nasal hygiene. It is also used to treat sinus infections, allergies, the common cold, post-nasal drip, and others conditions affecting the nose.
