Tiny diseased particles remain suspended in the air on dust particles and droplets from coughing, sneezing and talking.
Those diseased particles include the novel coronavirus known as SARS-CoV-2. Despite an ongoing global effort to accumulate greater knowledge of the COVID-19 disease, there is currently no widely approved treatment for the disease nor is there a vaccine or antiviral drug available for the public.
There are a number of studies looking at the effect of nasal saline irrigations in the setting of viral upper respiratory infections, and whether saline irrigations decreased viral shedding (when a virus replicates and then is released from your body) compared to control groups. However, at this time, there is no conclusive evidence that regularly rinsing the nose with saline has protected people from COVID-19 infection.
There’s a big difference between antiseptics and disinfectants. Both kill micro-organisms, however, an antiseptic is applied to the body, while disinfectants are applied to nonliving surfaces, such as countertops and handrails. For example, in a surgical setting a doctor will apply an antiseptic to the surgical site on or in a person’s body and use a disinfectant to sterilize the operating table.
Do not under any circumstance spray or introduce bleach or any other disinfectant into your body. These substances can be poisonous if ingested and cause severe irritations.
Povidone iodine (betadine) and peroxide are often used anti-septic treatments for the nasal cavity during surgery.
Several at-home nasal wash remedies are recommended by various bodies. However, clinical data regarding safe use and appropriate concentrations is only early-stage.*
A recent literature review by Dr. Brian Rotenberg MD MPH FRCSC identified that, "based on available evidence PVP-I routinely administered intra-nasally could potentially be an effective means of propholaxis against COVID-19"
CDC states that COVID-19 affects different people in different ways.
Most infected people will develop mild to moderate illness and recover without hospitalization.
Symptoms of a Common cold usually appear one to three days after exposure to a cold-causing virus. Signs and symptoms, which can vary from person, might include:
"It helped clear my sinuses & alleviate some pain. The System makes it easy to breathe no matter whether it is stuffiness or infection based."
"Impressed by NasoNeb's ability to keep my normally congested nose clear, without the need for oral antihistamines."
"It got farther into my sinuses then the Nellie product, and without pressure"
"We both felt that our sinus were clearer and unstuffed and it was easier to breathe the entire day."
Melvin & Blanca
"Within the first week it made a huge difference in my congestion, especially overnight. I have a major improvement in my congestion & has made sleeping easier."
Antibiotics do not work against viruses. Some people who become ill with COVID-19 can also develop a bacterial infection as a complication.
In this case, antibiotics may be recommended by a health care provider.
