DIY nasal treatment – 1 Redding doctor says yes, others say no to nose solution 08-07-2020

Published August 14, 2020

Here in Shasta County, Redding physician Dr. George Domb, an ear, nose and throat specialist, believes a similar treatment could keep COVID-19 at bay. Plus, he says it’s so simple that lay people can create the mixture from two ingredients found in any drug store: povidone iodine and a saline nasal spray.
