Relief from Nasal Dryness

Causes of dry nose include infection, nutritional deficiencies, and chronic atrophic rhinitis, which is nasal inflammation caused by having too little nasal mucus. Dry nose is also a common symptom of certain medications, like antihistamines and decongestants used for the common cold or allergies. Dry nose can lead to nose bleeds or a poor sense of smell. Many people have nasal mucosa dryness without being aware of it. Pure natural pharmaceutical-grade sesame oil preparations can moisturize nasal passages and reduce the build-up of dried mucus and crusts, resulting in easier breathing. Studies have found sesame oil to be significantly more effective than nasal saline. Patients with allergies to nuts or seeds should consult a physician before using a sesame oil product.
