The doctor may prohibit the use of a nebulizer in the sinus.
The grounds for such a ban are the following:

- high temperature;
- allergic to the ingredients of the medication;
- young age of the patient;
- the ineffectiveness of this treatment for the specific cause of the disease.
The essence of this method lies in the action of steam containing the medicinal substance on the body. Children up to year inhalation is not recommended. Small children only with parental supervision. And better if it is a specially designed apparatus, and utensils, as the child can in seconds turn on itself boiled water and to burn the body.
In some cases, inhalation will not be effective. For example, if the reason lies in the wrong position of the nasal septum or widening of the nasal cavities – in this case, only surgery will help get rid of sinusitis. Inhalation therapy can make breathing easier, but to remove the problem completely in this situation, they are not able to.
