A.

Nebulizers are used to deliver vapors to the lungs. Nebulizers are also used to help deliver asthmatic medications to the lungs for infants and other patients that have a difficult time using inhalers with spacers.

The medications used are not for nasal congestion, but for asthma.

Nasal congestion medications should not be poured into the nebulizers without supervision or recommendation form you health- care provider.

Check with your health-care providers prior to doing so.
