Otrivine Congestion Relief 0.1% Nasal Spray is for application in the nose to give relief from:
• nasal congestion (blocked nose, including colds)
• perennial and allergic rhinitis (recurring inflammation of the nasal mucous membranes, including hay fever)
Otrivine Congestion Relief 0.1% Nasal Spray contains the active ingredient xylometazoline hydrochloride which helps to open up and clear the nasal passages by reducing the excessive nasal secretions and returning the swollen blood vessels to their normal size.
A blocked nose often occurs with a cold, this causes excessive nasal secretions and the swelling of many tiny blood vessels that line the nose. The air passages become narrower and the nasal secretions may block the nose completely, leaving you feeling blocked up and congested.
