What is Breathe·ease® XL used for?
Saline nose drops are needed for most nasal and sinus conditions. They are recommended for dryness, crusting, and as an aid to normal nasal function. Saline sprays can also be used to prevent and treat nose bleeds.
The nose is supposed to moisten inhaled air, helping to maintain a moist environment for the cilia in the sinuses. These cilia are the body's first line of defense against infection. The moist, mucous environment also forms a pathway for the good white cells to reach the bad bacteria that may attempt to infect the body through inhalation.
Any dryness, itching, or crusting in the nose means that a moisturizer is needed for the nose to do it's job. Saline had always been considered the most common, safe, and simple such moisturizer. Today we know that the preservatives that must be added to insure a long long shelf life can be harmful or irritating to the nose, especially when the nose is irritated already.
