What is Sudafed Sinus-Ease Nasal Spray?
Sudafed Sinus-Ease Nasal Spray is a soothing treatment spray for blocked noses. It helps to clear your blocked nose whether it’s caused by a cold, the flu, sinusitis, hay fever, or anything else. If you have a busy life and need an easy congestion remedy that you can take in just a few seconds, Sudafed sinus spray could be exactly what you need.
Why is my nose blocked?
A blocked nose usually isn’t anything to worry about, and it can be caused by lots of different things. Some of the most common reasons why you could be experiencing a runny nose include:
- Cold and flu
- Hay fever and other allergies
How will Sudafed sinus spray help to ease my congestion?
Sudafed sinus spray contains an active ingredient called xylometazoline, which is a decongestant. It works by relieving swelling and inflammation in your nasal passaged, helping to clear the blockage. It lasts for up to 10 hours, reducing the amount of mucus produced in your nose so you can relax and breathe easy.
