Saline nasal spray

saline nasal spray

Many people with allergies look for simple remedies, especially if they do not get enough relief from the usual medicines and treatments. If you have a nasal allergy to pollen, a saltwater (saline) nasal spray may be one to consider.


This product treats dryness inside the nose (nasal passages). It helps add moisture inside the nose to dissolve and soften thick or crusty mucus in babies and young children with stuffy noses who cannot blow their noses, using this product helps to make the mucus easier to remove with a nasal bulb syringe. This helps relieve stuffiness and makes breathing easier. This product contains a purified gentle salt solution (also called saline or sodium chloride solution). It does not contain any medication.

How can it help allergies?

Some studies show that a saline solution restores moisture to dry nasal passages and sinuses, and curbs inflammation of mucous membrane. If you use a Neti pot or a small squirt bottle for saline irrigation regularly, it can help to thin mucus, give you less postnasal drip, and cleanse your nasal passages of pollen and other allergens.
