Steroid Nasal Wash effective for treating chronic sinusitisAccording to a small US Study, a steroid nasal wash can prove to be an effective option for reducing symptoms of chronic sinusitis without posing any harm to functions of the adrenal gland.

Chronic sinusitis is referred to as a continuing inflammation of the nose that is believed to affect approximately 14 percent of the United States’ population.

The researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis remarked that the study was the first one to conduct an examination about safety of this type of nasal wash. It was revealed in the study that the budesonide nasal respules are quite safe for a short-term usage to get relief from symptoms that are associated with chronic sinusitis.

All participants to the study showed some improvement with regard to the sinusitis symptoms. Furthermore, their adrenal gland was not affected by the usage of budesonide nasal respules.
