How to Prevent Nasal Polyp


There are no guidelines for preventing nasal polyps because the cause is unknown. But, there are several things you can do to reduce your chance of developing nasal polyps:

  • For a stuffy or runny nose, use a preservative-free saline spray. This helps reduce irritation in the sinuses.
  • If you have hay fever or another allergy, see your doctor for treatment. Avoid the substance that causes your allergy.
  • If you have asthma or frequent sinus infections, take your medicine as your doctor suggests.
  • If you have aspirin sensitivity, avoid all medicines that contain aspirin.
