What Are the Most Common Alternatives to Surgery?
Treatment for Santa Monica nasal airway obstruction doesn’t always have to involve surgery. There are other methods that are commonly used in order to treat these types of conditions.

Steroid Sprays
One of the most effective forms of non-surgical treatment is the use of specially designed steroid sprays. These are commonly prescribed to treat most kinds of nasal polyps. They work best on mild polyps caused by allergic reactions to dust, cats, grasses, or mold.

Steroid sprays can also be prescribed to treat patients who are suffering from medium to larger-sized polyps. These sprays can be very helpful when it comes to slowing down the growth of polyps and steadily shrinking down to a manageable size.

Steroid Pills
Another very commonly prescribed method of non-surgical treatment is the use of steroid pills. These can be somewhat less effective than steroid sprays.

The use of steroid sprays can cause a quick and dramatic shrinking of your polyps. However, the effect will usually be very temporary. It will last only a few days or, at most, a few weeks.

Steroid sprays can reduce the amount of fluid in your polyps. However, in many cases, the inflamed cells and tissue will still remain. In many cases, after you stop using the steroid spray, the fluid level in your polyps will rise again. This may enable them to return to their original size.
