What is Sterimar Stop And Protect Cold And Sinus Relief?
Sterimar Stop And Protect Cold And Sinus Relief is a treatment that works to provide relief for symptoms in the nose and sinuses caused by cold or other infections. This treatment is made using natural seawater, which has been filtered and is rich in minerals and also contains copper that helps to fight infection. This nasal spray also contains eucalyptus oil which helps to reduce congestion in the nose.
What is the cause of symptoms in the nose?
The main cause of any symptoms is an infection, such as a cold or flu. The nose can be one of the most affected areas because that is where the infection can enter the body. Germs can enter the body because of someone who is infected sneezes and the germs linger in the air which makes them easily able to go through the nose of someone else, infecting them. Because the nose is often the first place the germs come into contact with, that is where symptoms first appear.

This nasal spray is suitable to be used by adults and children aged 3 and over. It should not be used by anyone who is sensitive to any of the ingredients contained in the spray. If you are using any other type of medication, then you should speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using.
Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use this nasal spray?

How should Sterimar Stop And Protect Cold And Sinus Relief be used?
Blow your nose before use, with each nostril being blown. Then shake the bottle of nasal spray and removing the cover. If using for the first time, spray three times to start it. To use, insert into the nostril and tilt your head slightly in the direction of the nostril (for the left nostril, tilt slightly left) and spray twice. Gently inhale the second spray and then repeat the process with the other nostril. Allow a couple of minutes for the spray to work and then blow any remaining solution away with a tissue. Once you have finished, clean the tip of the spray using soapy water and then dry it. Do this process up to six times a day if needed.
Are there any side effects?
A side effect is most likely to be caused by an allergic reaction. If you notice any side effect, stop using the nasal spray and speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist as soon as possible. You can also record a side effect using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.
