Nasal Preparations in the Pharmacy
Keywords: nasal preparations
AbstractNasal preparations are available as irrigations, sprays, drops, gels and ointments. Irrigations are often used to clean the nasal passages from mucus and allergens and also as preparation before medicated products. Other nasal products are used to treat and prevent nasal symptoms such as dryness, congestion, itching, sneezing and infections. Nasal preparations work locally with fewer systemic side-effects and may therefore be preferred over oral therapy. This article provides an overview of the products available over the counter in South Africa and their proper use.
