Nose is the main entrance of air entry to the airway. The nose is equipped with a layer of mucus and fine hair called the mucosilier transport system. This layer serves to filter, warm and moisturize the incoming air.

This mucosilier transport system is a nasal defensive system against viruses, bacteria, fungi or harmful particles that are inhaled with air. If the system is disturbed then there can be complaints on the nose like stuffy nose and sneezing. To overcome this, washing the nose can be one solution.

Nasal washing has long been used in traditional medicine to maintain upper airway health. This technique began to be adopted by western medicine in the 19th century. Wash the nose is a spraying action of sterile fluid (usually NaCl 0.9%) into the nostrils. This nasal wash method can help treat colds, rhinosinusitis and allergic rhinitis.

Some benefits of washing nose include:
  1. Cleaning of dust, pollution and other harmful particles inhaled
  2. Dilute thick mucus.
  3. Cleaning of inflammatory mediators reduces allergy and cold symptoms.
  4. Maintain moisture of the nasal cavity.
  5. Preventing bacterial gathering.
  6. Improve the function of mucosilia in the nose.
  7. Reduces inflammation due to inflammation.
  8. How to do a nasal wash

Some tools to be prepared include nasal wash liquid (0.9% NaCl infusion liquid), transofix, 10 cc syringe, and container (cup or bowl) to put liquids. All of these tools can be purchased freely at the nearest pharmacy.

Steps of washing the nose:
  1. Connect the transofix to the intravenous fluid bottle.
  2. Pour the nasal wash fluid into the container.

Are there any side effects of nasal washing?

Like all other acts, washing the nose can cause some side effects. But generally these side effects rarely occur and can be handled.

Side effects of nasal washers are generally more rarely experienced by adults, such as nasal irritation, nasal discomfort, earache or fluid collections in the sinus cavity around the nose.

The nasal washing action is safe, easy and practical to do. Performing nasal suction once per day can help relieve the breath. Initially, when you first try maybe you will feel uncomfortable. But after a few times, you may even be addicted to this action.

Before doing so, discuss it first with an ENT specialist. Make sure the tools are used sterile in order to avoid bacterial contamination. If the complaint does not improve or worsens after nasal cleansing - especially if you have a fever, nosebleed or headache while washing your nose - check with your doctor immediately.
