Q.307 - I have fluid in one tube of my left ear. I would like to continue using the nasal wash for the other sinus. If you put wash in right nostral does can it affect the right or left ear?

When you rinse with the squeeze bottle, if you rinse on the right side, it may affect the right ear. If you rinse on the left side it might affect the left ear. But when you irrigate using the neti pot, it may affect opposite ear to the nasal passage you are rinsing.

 1) If there is any liquid in the reservoir, can I save it for another use later in the day or next morning, or do I have to throw it out? 2) Do I have to disassemble and wash after every use? If so, I find that a little labour intensive, and I'm not sure how much I'm going to use it. 3) I do not have a microwave. How should I clean the parts?

 1) I just re-read the disinfecting instructions (I have used NeilMed Sinus Rinse for years). Maybe I missed it before but the instructions say to use distilled or filtered water to wash the bottle with detergent. I have always used tap water to wash and then a rinse with distilled water. I then microwave the bottle and tube. Is it ok to use tap water for the wash? I seems to wast a lot of distilled water to wash and rinse the bottle. 2) Also, when I microwave should I place the tube on the bottom of the microwave or is it OK to place the tube and noozle on top of the bottle? 3) What is the best head angle to use to get to chronic sinus congestion in the cheek just below the eyes? I also have congestion and pain along the side of one eye near the nose. Should I try double saline to try to get rid of this chronic congestion?

 Our allergy specialist recommended my 6 year old son to use Pediatric Sinus Rinse. Can he use the NasaMist instead as he doesn't like the rinse? We had the NasaMist® Gentle Mist. Does the mist and the rinse works the same for allergies purposes?
