Nasal Allergies and Botox

If you are one of the 35 million American who suffers from nasal allergies, you might soon start hearing that a botox injection is one of the better treatment options for allergies.

Turns out a recent study was completed in Korea that compared patients with allergies who were either injected with botox, steroids, or normal saline into their nasal turbinates.

The study found that those injected with botox had both better overall improvement as well as longer lasting improvement than those who received steroid injections when they compared runny nose symptoms, nasal obstruction symptoms, and itching symptoms.

Stay tuned and we’ll let you know more as information becomes available, but this was an interesting preliminary study.
