Product introduction

Sino Nasal Spray is a steroid. It relieves the symptoms of rhinitis (blocked nose) such as runny nose, sneezing, and sinus discomfort. It works by blocking the production of certain chemical messengers that cause inflammation (swelling) and allergies, thus relieving the discomfort and irritation in your nose.

You should always use Sino Nasal Spray as advised by your doctor. To get the full benefit of the medicine you should use it regularly. Normally, you should blow your nose gently before using it, keep one nostril closed while applying the medicine into the other, and then sniff hard to make sure it reaches deep into the nose. Then repeat for the other nostril.

Nasal irritation is a very common side effect of this medicine. It may also cause nosebleed and headaches in some patients. Talk to your doctor if you are worried about side effects or they do not go away. Using corticosteroids like this medicine makes you more susceptible to viral infections, so you should stay away from people who have these infections. In general, you should try to avoid situations which make your symptoms worse (things like pollen and dust mites) and it’s best not to smoke.

Before using this medicine, you should let your doctor know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. If you use this medicine for a long time, your doctor may want to carry out certain medical tests to check your progress.

Benefits of Sino Nasal Spray

In Treatment of Sneezing and runny nose due to allergies

Sino Nasal Spray belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids. When it is sprayed into your nose it will reduce swelling and irritation and relieve symptoms such as blocked or stuffy nose, sneezing, and itchy or watery eyes. It is less likely than some other medicines to cause high blood pressure or changes in your sodium or potassium levels. This medicine works in your nose to block the effects of substances like pollen, dust mites, and mould that can trigger allergic reactions. This will make it easier for you to go about your daily activities without worrying so much about getting an allergic reaction. It may not work straight away, so use it regularly as prescribed to get the most benefit. If you see no improvement after a week, talk to your doctor.

If you have hay fever, try not to spend too much time outside when the pollen count is high. Take a shower and change your clothes after you have been outside to wash off pollen. Wear a mask to cover your nose and mouth whenever you step outside." <br><br>
