Nasal Spray for Extra Respiratory Protection in Pandemic Times 

Not only the Corona virus, many of us forget that air pollution, germs, and disease-causing bacteria are very easily spread through the air. Therefore, it is very important to implement health protocols to break the chain of pandemic spread and take part in preventive measures from other diseases.

Apart from wearing a mask, keeping your distance, and washing your hands, you can use some additional protection. One of them is with a nasal spray.

Benefits of using a nasal spray

Nasal sprays as a medical aid have been used for a long time to treat colds and sneezing which are symptoms of certain diseases, such as allergic rhinitis and sinusitis. The types of nasal sprays that function as drugs have various ingredients, including Oxymetazoline, Cromolyn, and Phenylephrine.

In addition, nasal sprays come in a variety of forms, from liquid to powder. Some studies suggest that nasal spray in powder form containing Hypercellulose Powder can create a natural barrier layer against allergens (allergens) and bad particles of dirty air.

Clinical research has also shown that powdered nasal spray can reduce respiratory symptoms caused by air pollution, such as sneezing and nasal congestion.

Not only does it provide protection when you are outside the home, nasal spray powder can also protect you from indoor air pollution that can endanger your health, such as cigarette smoke, dust, fragrances, and chemical fumes from household cleaning products.

Apart from the medicinal content, the types and forms of the ingredients also have an effect. The mechanism of a nasal spray or nasal spray in powder form is different from that in liquid form.

When sprayed into the nose, the powdered nasal spray will turn into a gel that coats the inner surface of the nasal cavity. This gel can protect the respiratory tract by blocking the entry of allergens and bad particles from the air through the nose.

This protective effect is also obtained from the Hypercellulose content in powder nasal sprays. When affected by moisture in the nasal cavity, these substances turn into a gel that forms a barrier, and prevents the allergens from coming into contact with the surface of the nasal cavity.

Compared to liquid nasal sprays, the use of a nasal spray or powder form nasal spray is very practical and comfortable to use:

  • With the normal head position, point the top of the opened powder nasal spray bottle into the nostrils.
  • Squeeze the body of the bottle just enough to inhale a breath-pleasing aroma such as the scent of Peppermint.
  • Take the spray tip out of the nostril and breathe normally. Repeat with the other nostril.
  • Powdered nasal spray can be sprayed 1-2 times into each nostril.

Powdered nasal sprays generally work quickly in 2 minutes and can provide protection to the nose for 6–8 hours. As a form of body protection, powdered nasal spray is also safe to use up to 2-3 times a day.

Nasal spray powder uses natural ingredients, such as Hypercellulose Powder and Peppermint, so it is classified as safe and can be used by children over 2 years old, adults, pregnant women, nursing mothers, and the elderly. Even so, it's a good idea to consult your doctor first before using nasal sprays on children.

The use of medical aids, such as a powdered nasal spray, during this pandemic can give you extra protection. However, use it according to the rules of use stated on the packaging and make sure you choose a product that has been registered with BPOM RI or the Indonesian Ministry of Health to ensure its safety, yes.
