This is nothing serious.
The effect of oxymetazoline should have passed by now.
Do not use this for no more than 3 days.
Oxymetazoline can cause withdrawal symptoms like rebound sinus congestion if used for long period of time.
You do not need to worry about its toxicity now --as this is not common.
You can try sudafed tablet for decongestion.
So I probably don't need to run to the ER to treat it to avoid permanent swelling to the sinuses?
no you do not need to
That's a relief.
no there will not be any permanent damage.
Great. Still have to see the doc about my eustachian tubes clogged, but thanks for saving me an expensive trip to the ER.
you can use sudafed in the meantime which help.
