My doctor gives me a shot of kenalog approx. every 4 months to help treat my nasal polyps. It usually clears up everything for about 2 months and then slowly they come back over the next 2 months. I also use flonase daily and sinus rinse once or twice a day. It was definitely an improvement over the prednisone bursts and lasted much longer. Also, if you haven't been tested for allergies at all or in a few years, you should see if any allergies exist. I found that after 3 years I acquired quite a few more reactions and also now use antihismines where needed.

Why does my nose burn after I use nasal spray?

Do you use it a lot? Or have you used it for more then 3 days? If you have it's probably because the lining in your nose is irritated by the over use.

I would try 4-Way Saline nasal spray, expessially If you have been over using, it really helps for the over use of decongestant sprays. However, if you haven't been using it for more then 3 days or using it too often, I would ask your doctor, and either way, lay off the nasal spray, it may be really damaging your nose.

When do you use 'were' instead of 'where'?

The word 'where' is used when describing at, in, or to what place. (definition from merriam-webster.com) some examples: Where are we going? Where is the car? Do you know where my brother is? The word 'were' is a helping verb, meaning it normally appears right before a verb. (not to be confused with we're, the contraction of we are) Again, some examples: We were going to the store. You were running in the hall. That's when we were watching television. Something else that might help you is thinking of 'were' as the past tense of 'are'. We are going to the store You are running in the hall That's when we are watching television. Subsituting 'are' for 'were' changes the sentence from doing it in the past to doing it presently.. ______________. Here is a basic response. There are other uses of the words. Were is part of the verb to be or it is a helping verb. When 'were' is used, it probably will be as a verb or a helping verb. I might say "We are reading", meaning that the act of reading is happening right now. Or I might say "We were reading", meaning that at some time in the past, we engaged in the activity of reading. . "Where" often asks a question about location, or says something about a location, or about some state of being. Where are the keys? I want to go where we went 5 years ago; that was great! "I hate being in a situation where I am asked questions I cannot answer." . Maybe a quick way to keep them straight in most cases is to think that the word WHERE has the word HERE in it; here is a location. "I'm right here. Where are you?" If you want something that is like a verb or helping verb, use WERE.

When do you use me instead of i?

The answer below mine is a joke - or at least intended as one; whoever wrote it didn't take the time actually to be funny. I and me are personal pronouns. Myself is a reflexive pronoun, and I'll throw in some tips on that for free :-) You use "I" when you are the subject of your sentence. For example: I went to the store with her. You use "me" when you are the object, either of a verb, e.g.: I love the roses you sent me. Or a prepositional phrase: She shared her deepest secrets with me The prepositional phrase is one area where a lot of people are tripped up. Prepositions are the words we use to indicate direction (to), position (on, with), time (before), etc., A prepositional phrase starts with the preposition and in most cases ends with the object. So in the sentence: She shared her deepest secrets with me The prepositional phrase is "with me;" You use "me" in this sentence because it is the object of the preposition. You never use "I" when you are the object of a preposition. An example of a common mistake is: If we kill the farmer, we can split his crops and animals between you and I. "Between" is a preposition, so in the prepositional phrase "between you and I" "you and I" is the object (or compound object to be precise, more about that later), so you would use "me." Many people say "between you and I" because it somehow sounds like it should be right. It's not. The same goes for: Rodrick Hornytoad came to the movies with she and I. Both "she" and "I" are incorrect here. It should read "with her and me " Myself is a reflexive pronoun (it's also an intensifier*, but we won't confuse the issue here). Example of correct use: I cut myself very badly as I was killing the farmer. "Myself" refers to "I" and is used to show that you have done something to yourself. Example of incorrect use: Sheila and myself adamantly denied killing the farmer. * I killed the farmer myself is an example of myself as an intensifier. It emphasizes that you were the one who did something. If someone had just asked you who helped you kill the farmer, then "I killed the farmer myself" makes it clear that you had no help killing the farmer. PITFALLS AND PREVENTIONS: In Latin every noun (not just pronouns) has a case ending to determine its function in the sentence. But unless you're taking Latin in school, you don't have to worry about that. In English, personal pronouns (I, me, myself; you, you, yourself; he, him, himself; she, her herself; etc.,) have case endings, but personal nouns (e.g., someone's name) do not. Roderick gave me the knife. I gave the knife back to Roderick. It doesn't matter if Roderick is the subject of the sentence, as he is in the first sentence, or the object, as he is in the second sentence. We still call him Roderick. So why don't we do the same with personal pronouns? Why don't we just use "me" for everything? Yes, it would sound funny to us, but is there a logical reason why we can't, or is it just a quirk of the language? - would our meaning be any less clear for example if we said, Me went to the store with Jane. instead of I went to the store with Jane. Of course not. In both sentences I understand that you went to the store and you did so with Jane. Neither packs any more meaning or precision than the other. There is, however, one situation I can think of (which doesn't mean there aren't others) where the use of different personal pronouns is necessary. Read the followings sentences and tell me which is correct. My mother has always liked Roderick better than I. My mother has always liked Roderick better than me. It's a trick question, because they're both correct because they mean different things. The first sentence means that mother has always liked Roderick better than I like Roderick. The second sentence means mother has always like Roderick better than she likes me. The pitfall comes when you say the first sentence, even though what you mean to say is expressed by the second sentence. Another pitfall comes with the compound subject and the compound object. Roderick and I killed the farmer The police caught Roderick and me In the first sentence, the phrase "Roderick and I" is the subject. It's called a compound subject because it has compounded (put together) Roderick and I. In the second sentence the phrase "Roderick and me" is the compound object. An easy way to avoid making mistakes here is to take Roderick (or whomever) out of the sentence, and then say it to yourself. For example: Roderick and me killed the farmer. If you remove, Roderick, and say to yourself "me killed the farmer," you will know immediately that it's wrong. Or with... The police caught Roderick and I. You remove Roderick once more and you're left with: The police caught I. Which, unless you're in Jamaica and you've just shot the sheriff (but not the deputy), just doesn't sound right. I hope I haven't left anything out or left you more confused than you were at the start:-) you use i if you say something like "i went to the shop or i had fun on Friday" and you use me when you say something like this "it was fun when me and you went swimming"or"rebecca,kymberly,Erin and me is going to swimming , do you want to come with us?" stuf like that i am oly 13 but i really like English so i am realy good at this

Can vasomotor rhinitis affect the lungs causing asthma instead of nasal symptoms?

I don't know much about it, but I have recently discovered that I think my husband has it. He has had severe sinus problems all summer and he is not really allergic to anything. He was in the hospital with asthmatic bronchitis (has never had asthma before that). Since then he has asthma like symptoms and needs a breathing treatment and an inhaler to handle it. He is super sensitive to perfumes and cannot be in enclosed buildings with lots of people. It is a real bummer and we wish we had more answers. I would lean toward saying it can affect the lungs too as it has with him. After all, it is all related. Hope this helps a little.

Does sinuswars13 really treat nasal polyps?

The answer is YES. I had polyps so bad that I literally couldn't breathe thru either side of my nose. Up all night clearing my throat, and trying to fall asleep despite that I could only breathe thru my mouth. Complete misery! I ended up going to an ENT, was scoped, and diagnosed with nasal polyps. After steroids, antibiotics, sprays, and a second trip to his office, surgery seemed like the only solution at that point. In a desperate attempt to try one last thing, I ordered a remedy from sinus-pro.com. It helped tremendously! I now have been taking the Sinuswars 13 remedy, and have been feeling great as well. They really do work! I had a polyp so big that when I blew my nose, you could see the bulge in my left nostril from the outside of my nose. It's not visible whatsoever now, and I can breathe much, MUCH better. Just follow the directions and be patient. It didn't bring relief overnight, or even in just a couple days, it took a couple of weeks for me to feel some relief. Hope this helps everyone, because I know first hand that polyps can cause an uncomfortable interruption to everyday life.

What medicine is recommended for effective cure of post nasal drip?

Antihistamines such as Allergy medications (benadryl, zyrtec, cleratine, allegra, etc) do help temporarily by shutting down the mucus production. I've had post nasal drip for over 5 years now, it makes you cough in the mornings and sometimes gets pretty uncomfortable. I use antihistamines however I pretty much would have to use it all the time lol so I found that sinus flush have been working for me. You go to Amazon, or to local pharmacy (cvs, wallgreens, even walmart) and you buy either nasal irrigator or what I found works better nasal syringe. You fill it with warm water, and slowly squeeze the water in one of your nostrils, (make sure it doesn't leak from the same nostril). Squeeze the water slowly, you will feel as the water fills all your sinus cavities and after a couple seconds as you squeeze starts dripping from the other nostril -that's what you want because it means it reached all the sinuses and now flushes all the bacteria and mucus out. Now there is that moment when the water goes up your nose to the sinuses, that moment sucks cuz always gives me a headache (it's the same feeling if water gets up your nose in the pool or lake), but when you get past that its ok (you can adjust your head tilt, I found that it depends on your head position). Make sure the water comes out thru the other nostril.... As much as the allergy pills help you temporarily, you can use it as a adition to those. I have been using it once a day or once every few days for about 5 minutes from one nostril to another, and so far don't have to take allergy pills at all, my sinus feels very clear and less dripy, no cough in the mornings either. It didn't eliminate completely the nasal drip but reduced it so I don't notice that and no flem or the bacteria in there anymore cuz they all com out with the water.... So far it works well :)
