Hot Pepper Nasal Spray -- Would You Try It?

So I've been reading a lot about Capsaicin with its amazing relief for back pain, cancer prevention and even sinus problems. However, it never really occurred to me how exactly you would go about getting the sinus relief until now...

Enter Sinus Buster Hot Pepper Nasal Spray. Sounds horribly painful to me. Though I have not tried it and I have no idea if it even burns, I am a little frightened to squeeze hot pepper juice up my already tender nostrils in hopes of relief from these blasted allergies. What do you think? Is the hot pepper nasal spray something you'd try?

Feeling adventurous? Buy it online from CVS.com for $15.99.

Being a student of New Mexico State University, where the world's hottest pepper comes from, I can proudly say I'd rather eat my peppers than snort them. I find a good spicy enchilada will clear up my sinuses in a flash (with a bit of icky nose running at the dinner table though...). I vote for just eating some Jalapenos rather than using a nose spray.

I always snort cayenne when I have a head cold, something my mother used to recommend since I have horrible lungs. I would try it if I were on the go, but otherwise I use an herbal formula that doesn't burn... I think this would make my whole head red.

I would think smelling it would open your nose - but I don't think I would squirt the liquid up there.

When I eat really spicy food, my sinuses clear and I feel wonderful, so I imagine this is similar, I'd try it.

It makes me think of shooting pepper spray (the mace kind, not this kind) up my nose and my eyes are watering horribly just thinking about it!

I don't like pepper...especially hot pepper, so this is VERY wrong for me. I picture my nose on fire like in cartoons

I would try it. Sometimes, when you are so stuffy and feel like you just can't breathe- or do that thing where you can breathe out of one nostril but not the other, I would give practically anything a shot- even pepper up my nose :wink:

I have tried it. It's not that bad. My Mom suffers from horrible migraines, and we are always on the lookout for alternative relief for her since she hates the feeling that the medicine gives her. My Dad read that this was good for migraines, and her and I both tried it. It helped for the most part. The only issue that I had was that it drips down your throat a little bit, and that stings a bit, but only briefly.
