By now, you probably feel you tried everything there was to try to fix your baby’s blocked nose during a nasty cold. You asked everybody, you went to the pediatrician, you reached every forum of the far out corners of the internet. Well, all is not lost. Before your next visit to the doctor, give Sterimar Hypertonic Nasal Spray for Kids a try. 

How does Sterimar Hypertonic Nasal Spray for Kids work?

The nasal mucosa is made of 3 layers of cells.

The respiratory tract’s epithelial cells have small extensions, similar to little hairs, called cilia, and it is with their help that the excessive mucus gets cleaned. Sometimes however, when we catch a cold or when we are exposed to germs and allergens, the body needs a little help cleaning the excessive mucus.

Sterimar’s unique microdiffusion technique consists of applying a very delicate sea-water based spray on the nasal mucosa. The droplets are extremely fine thus staying longer in contact with the mucosa. This prolonged contact improves the penetration of trace elements and helps remove excessive mucus and allergens which endanger the health of your nose.

Sterimar Hypertonic Nasal Spray for Kids cleans the mucus in your baby’s nose helping him breathe and feed normally. The hypertonic solution has a slightly higher salt concentration than is normally found in the human body. This aspect favors osmosis,the natural process through which one or more substances move through a semi-permeable membrane into a region of higher solute concentration, in the direction that tends to equalize the solute concentrations on the two sides.  Osmosis helps remove the excess fluid filled with germs in the nasal mucosa, aiming to provide natural relief in the case of nasal congestion and prompt natural breathing through the nose. The spray also stimulates the natural defense mechanism in the nasal tissue and helps improving ENT symptoms.

This nasal solution works by drawing the liquid from the mucosa back into the nasal cavity where it can be easily cleansed by simply blowing the child’s nose or with the help of nasal aspirators. The entire process is is quick, gentle and painless.
