What is Sterimar Hayfever & Allergies Nasal Spray?
Sterimar Hayfever & Allergies Nasal Spray is a form of treatment that uses natural ingredients to help reduce the symptoms of an allergy.

What is allergic rhinitis?
Allergic rhinitis is when the nose is affected by an allergy and becomes inflamed. This can cause symptoms including sneezing, or a blocked or a runny nose. It is commonly caused by conditions such as hay fever, or any other allergy. There is no cure but the effects can be treated and reduced.
Who is this nasal spray suitable for?
This nasal spray is suitable to be used by adults and children aged 3 years and over, thanks to the natural ingredients that it uses. For children under the age of 3, Sterimar Baby Nasal Spray is recommended. Speak to a professional for advice on the best nasal spray for your child.
Can this nasal spray be used by someone pregnant or breastfeeding?
There is no evidence of any problems when using this nasal spray when pregnant or breastfeeding. Though, as always, it is recommended that you speak to a doctor before using any medication.
Can this Sterimar Nasal Spray be used when any other medication?
The chances of interference when using this nasal spray and another type of medication is minimal. This is because Sterimar only uses natural ingredients.
How should Sterimar Hayfever & Allergies Nasal Spray be used?
The spray should be used by keeping straight and placing the nozzle straight up the nostril. Spray once or twice in each nostril and blow it afterwards, making sure that any excess fluid is removed. If you need a deeper cleansing of the nostrils, then tilt your head and place the nozzle in the nostril and spray for 2-3 seconds once in each nostril. Blow your nose after use and clean the nozzle with warm, soapy water. Use the nasal spray between 2-6 times a day.
Are there any side effects?
Because there are no drugs, steroids, or preservatives contained in this nasal spray, there shouldn’t be any side effects. However, that is not definite and if you do notice any side effect, speak to a doctor as soon as possible. You can also report any side effect you discover using the MHRA’s Yellow Card Scheme.
