Dr Ryen, quick question. I’ve been using Neti Pots for years to help with my allergies, but it’s a hassle to always boil water and let it cool beforehand. Is this necessary?
Hi Evelyn! Nasal congestion can be miserable. Sometimes it's from catching a cold, other times it's due to environmental allergies (like you), and some poor folks have chronic congestion all the time for no good reason. Whatever the cause, not being able to breath through your nose sucks.
