Healthy Living: Relief for Chronic Sinusitis

The CDC says more than 30 million adults in the U.S. struggle with chronic sinusitis.

Stuffy nose, congestion, swelling, facial pain, trouble sleeping: the symptoms can be debilitating.

In Healthy Living, see how a new way of treating it may finally offer relief.

Dr. Piccirillo says both budesonide and the use of nasal lavage are common and widely available.

The new part is simply the delivery system.

Dr. Piccirillo says this is available right now to patients who are interested.

He suggests patients talk to their doctor about how to add the powder form of the drug, not the commonly used spray, to a saltwater nasal rinse.
