  • How to use

    The maximum daily dose to be sprayed is 2-3 times a day, two sprays per nostril. Do not use for more than three days at a time unless advised by a doctor or pharmacist. If congestion persists for more than 3 days, seek medical advice.

    1. Do not cut the nozzle. The metered dose spray is ready to prime before use.
    2. Gently clear your child’s nose.
    3. Remove protective cap.
    4. Before using for the first time, prime the pump by actuating 4 times. Once primed, the pump will normally remain charged throughout regular daily treatment periods. If the spray is not ejected during the full actuation stroke, or if the product has not been used for longer than 7 days, the pump will need to be reprimed with 2 actuations. Be very careful not to spray in the eyes or mouth.
    5. Hold bottle upright with thumb under base and nozzle between two fingers.
    6. Lean your child’s head forward slightly and insert the nozzle into the nostril. Spray and ask the child to breathe in gently through the nose at the same time.
