Does nasal saline irrigation decrease the symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis when used as adjunctive therapy? Evidence-Based Answer: It appears likely, although the magnitude of any additional effect is unclear. Saline nasal irrigation decreases symptoms of allergic rhinitis, but does not improve quality of life in children and adults compared with a heterogeneous collection of control treatments (SOR: B, extrapolated from a meta-analysis with some nonactive comparators). In children, saline nasal irrigation as adjunctive therapy to nasal steroids decreases symptoms more than either therapy individually (SOR: B, single RCT).
