Just wondering how many people here are doing daily nasal rinses? My 3 boys had skin testing done (all PA), and although they have rare seasonal allergies (easily managed by occasional use of OTC antihistamines), the allergist suggested daily nasal rinses. It could be in relation to having pets in the house (the kids do not react to them but show a mild + in both blood and skin tests), or that they all had random mild +ves to various pollens etc... Not sure what to do, it would probably work ok with my older son, but the younger 2 can be very difficult (PDD-NOS) and I think it would cause quite a bit of stress to them.

I know people who swear by these! We tried the Neti pot on dd when she was so desperate to relieve her seasonal allergies. It was um...well, it takes some practice to get good at it! :roll:

We were so busy laughing that in the end, I don't knwo if she ever did do it right! She did say that it seemed to help a bit.

My daughter hated it. I use it sometimes. My husband uses it twice a day every day and said it has helped him immensely.

Thanks for the info. I am trying a mild hydrasense spray with them, probably not the full cleaning effect of a rinse, I may move to that eventually if they continue to tolerate this well. I have tried the sinus rinse myself and detest it...:/
