Nasal and Sinus Polyp Treatments

Nasal and sinus polyps are generally treated with medications to shrink or eliminate the nasal polyps or surgery to remove them.

  • Steroids: Some people have success with shrinking polyps with corticosteroid sprays or oral steroids.
  • Surgery: Larger polyps that don’t respond to steroids may have to be surgically removed through the nostrils.

The best way to ensure that nasal polyps don’t return is to treat the underlying related medical condition(s), which may include:

  • Asthma
  • Allergic rhinitis
  • Chronic sinus infection
