One way to treat a nasal infection is to use a product called Naseptin, which contains an antibiotic and a disinfectant. Naseptin is used to treat and prevent infections in the nose. Naseptin works by killing certain bacteria that cause infections. Another product that can be utilised is Bactroban Nasal ointment, which is an antibacterial. It works by stopping the production of essential proteins needed by the bacteria to survive.
