Saline Solution (Another question)
#1
Smile 
Just was wondering whats the best saline solution for clearing a dry nose, on occasion I get slight allergies and sometimes my nose gets dry what would be best for that? Like what brand saline solution is best? Is there a specific one for cpap users that's better? Ide like something clearing and soothing If possible

I've used both Neilmed (US) and FLO (Aus) ... FLO not available in US
Both good products

Edit: for dry nose, try some moisturizing cream "Lansinoh HPA Lanolin" used by breast feeding mothers
Also experiment with humidity setting, some are happy with more humidity than others

Thank you Smile I will check out the Neilmed! the flo looks good but since im in the us ill go with the neilmed and as for the lansinoh I actually picked some of that up already lol I figured I will need it at some point ecspecially if I go with pillows so I bought it and I have my receipt if I end up not opening it that stuffs expensive! I have no idea what I used in the sleep lab for a machine but know it had humidity that definitely makes a difference im sure I could feel the humidity I couldn't have imagined it without the humidifier!

I use the Neillmed one. It's little packets you mix in the bottle. I use the squirt bottle, not the neti pot. I use it a lot during allergy season and sometimes in the winter.

Ayr is another maker of saline sprays and related nasal stuff. They also make a nose ointment that says it is great for sore CPAP mask noses. I've used it once I think. I had a sore spot just inside my one nostril. It seemed to help.

If you go to a big chain store pharmacy, where you find the Neillmed you should find others. They are all basically the same.

You can also make your own but I don't know the recipe.
