How do the nasal drops work?

These drops contain a nasal decongestant. Nasal decongestants help
clear blocked noses associated with a number of conditions including
colds, sinusitis and hay fever.

9 Arkwright Road
Astmoor Industrial Estate

A blocked nose, such as occurs with a cold, is caused by excessive
nasal secretions and the swelling up of many tiny blood vessels that
line the nose. The air passages become narrower and the nasal
secretions may block the nose completely.

Prepared and packaged for:
Manx Healthcare Limited,
1 Hawkes Drive,
CV34 6LX

The nasal decongestant in this product helps to open up the nasal
passages by reducing the excessive nasal secretions and reducing the
swollen blood vessels to their normal size. It will help your child breathe
more easily and so feel better. The effects start within minutes and last
for up to about 10 hours.
