First, thanks for the info on AYR saline gell (w/Aloe); was a great relief on my very painful, dry-as-leather nasal passages. Not sure of the cause, but was 3 days ago.
I've been using a Neti pot on&off for 3 weeks, and found it to be an asset to my breathing, due to narrow nasal passages.
I asked my pharmacist if it would be OK to use a saline solution in the water used for the heated humidifier. He said "Definitely". So, I used it last night for the first time, and my nostrils remained clear, and I didn't wake up w/congestion. Even our blood vessels carry the blood in saline, so why not give it what it needs? I'll let you know the results after a week's use, and I expect it to be positive. Offerocker/Kathleen (unable to logon with my Registered name.
