What is Sterimar Hypertonic Congestion Relief Nasal Spray?

Sterimar Hypertonic Congestion Relief is a nasal spray that is unlike others on the market. This is because this spray does not contain any antihistamines or steroids. Instead, the active ingredient is minerals from seawater. This works by washing away germs that cause infection and clears fluids, making breathing easier.


What causes symptoms in the nose?

Symptoms in the nose are generally caused by an infection such as a cold or the flu, or by an allergy such as hay fever. The symptoms occur when the cause of the infection or allergy comes into contact with the nose. This causes irritation which causes the blood vessels to swell in the nose, making breathing more difficult.


Who is this nasal spray suitable for?

This nasal spray is suitable to be used by adults and children aged 3 and over. Anyone who is currently using any other form of treatment for the symptoms should speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using.


Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use this nasal spray?

Because it only contains natural ingredients, this nasal spray is fine to use when pregnant or breastfeeding. If you are unsure about what treatment to use, then consult a medical professional.


How should Sterimar Hypertonic Congestion Relief Nasal Spray be used?

To use this nasal spray, prime the spray by pressing on the nozzle. Once it has been primed, insert the nozzle into a nostril and while keeping the head still and not sniffing, press the spray. After spraying, blow your nose and repeat the process for the other nostril. After using, clean the nozzle with soapy water. Do not use this spray for more than one person. This is to prevent the spread of germs.


Are there any side effects?

Because it contains only natural ingredients, the chance of side effects is low. Though if you do notice a side effect when using it, speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist as soon as possible. You can also record any side effect that you notice using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.

I have had a cold about three weeks ago and it had left me with congestion in the nose (mostly at night) which also bleeds when I blow my nose. Will the saline spray help?

This should help clear up any lasting congestion and will help to soothe your irritated nasal passages which are likely to be the cause of the bleeding. Please speak to your GP if the problem persists

Is this product safe to use during pregnancy?

Because it only contains natural ingredients, this nasal spray is fine to use when pregnant or breastfeeding.

I think I have an allergy to my cats, I take an antihistamine everyday but I need a nasal spray to help especially at night when I'm the most congested. At the minute the only thing that works to clear my nose is sudafed nasal spray however it says this is not safe for use over long periods. Please can you advise what is best for long term use along with antihistamines to help with sneezing and congestion.

Repeated use of Sudafed Nasal spray has the potential to cause rebound congestion, which is a worsening of your nasal congestion due to nasal decongestant sprays. Alternatives for allergies would be Beclometasone Nasal Spray (Mild steroid) or Sterimar is a much safer alternative, as made with natural sea water.
