What is it about?
Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a long-term condition characterised by nasal blockage, smell loss, a runny nose and facial pain/pressure as well as poor quality of life. The mainstay of treatment is through the use of nasal sprays and rinses. This study of a national database looks at patient reported use of these medications.
