Customer Question

The pollen has exploded in South Carolina and it usually drives me nuts for about 2 weeks. I take Benadryl for it. The questions are these. Can I use nose spray with the Benadryl? Can I or should I put my head near a vaporizer to breath in the mist. ? Inside of nose in irritated from sneezing, can feel pretty easy when one is coming on. Any that can be put inside your nose to cause some relief from that? Probably a stupid question. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I wear a mask when I am outside because I also work outside for a living. This only lasts about 2 weeks. Thank you. Kevin

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes you can use a nasal spray with benadryl.

Yes you can put your head near vaporizer to breath in mist.

You can use Xlear nasal spray containing xylitol for soothing action.

Also a steroid nasal spray like flonase can be used as well over the counter.

You can use claritin in place of benadryl as it is nondrowsy.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
