Neti Pot Has anyone tried it for allergies?

How well does it work? Do the results last a while?

  • I love mine. I used to get recurring sinus infections throughout the year, and now I rarely get them at all if I use it just about every day. I still take Claritin and use a nose spray on occasion too, but it keeps the infections away.

  • I have a version of the neti pot. I love it. Just don't over do it cause it can cause infection and dryness.

  • My sister got me using my Neti Pot. It does work well, but takes some time getting use to pouring salt water in your nose lol. When I need to use it, it lasts me a week before having to use it again. My sister on the other hand, has to use hers just about everyday to every other day. Just depends on how bad your allergies are.

  • It feels more or less like its just flushing out the nasty boogies, but the congested feeling still stays for me. It helps reduce the sneezing, but doesn't help if its a head cold. It wouldn't hurt to try though. My mom gagged when I tried getting her to use it. =)
