Nasal sprays have little benefit for sinusitis16th May 2012
Researchers at the University of Oxford who analysed six previous studies have found that steroid nasal sprays have only a "small benefit" when used to treat sinusitis.
The study's co-author Matthew Thompson said: "Looking at all the trials together, we found that nasal steroids seem to give a small benefit for patients with acute sinusitis. In fact, they work about as well as antibiotics do." He added that nasal sprays were not a "game changer" but could offer another treatment option for doctors looking for ways of treating patients.
