Neti Pot or nasal spray: Which is better during cold and flu season?

[KARE 11 News, January 13, 2023] Cold and flu season is in full swing and many people are suffering from nasal congestion, runny noses, and sneezing. Some of us turn to nasal rinses to try and get some relief, but which one is the best for you?

Doctors we spoke to say Neti Pots are the better option to keep your nose and sinus area clean.

“Nasal saline spray may not be as effective as Neti Pot because when you do Neti Pot, you essentially have a large volume. That large volume will flush out things much better than using just a nasal spray which is a smaller volume of the fluid," said Dr. Pramod Kelkar, an allergy specialist at Allina Health.
