I have already written about the means for washing children’s nozzles, today I would like to talk about some popular nose drops, the use of which is necessary for prolonged rhinitis and non-transparent snot.
However, you should use nasal drops in combination with a saline solution, the ideal option is to first rinse the nose, blow the nose (thus freeing the nasal cavity) and then use the drops.
Many drugs that are designed for older children are available in the form of sprays. Personally, I like this form more – you do not need to stack the child, which makes the procedure less painful for the baby.
These were the first drops I bought for my daughter. And the first pancake turned out, of course, lumpy. I didn’t notice any effect after them, afterwards both I and my husband tried to be treated by them – the effect is the same, or rather, its absence.
The tool contains components of mineral and vegetable origin. The manufacturer claims that lasting improvement occurs already 3-4 days after the start of use, and in general, is the only homeopathic remedy with proven direct antiviral activity.
Perhaps the drug works precisely because of the presence of sodium chloride in it (in fact, the same saline solution), partly, the placebo principle is important. Indeed, in homeopathy the main thing is to believe in it. By the way, the presence of silver in the compound also confuses me.
My nose is the most problematic place, and the district lore recognizes me on the street. I tried several times even at the earliest stages to treat the runny nose with Euphorbium – I did not notice the effect.
With regular use of her daughter’s transparent snot turned thick and acquired color. The cost of funds about 300r. (I can’t write more precisely because all Heel preparations are currently withdrawn from pharmacies in Ukraine).
For children aged 1 to 6 years, the content of the active substance is 0.025%. For children of another age need a different dosage.
The drug has a clear vasoconstrictor and anti-edema effect, the effect is observed after a few minutes after use. Often there is a side effect – dryness of the nasal mucosa, which the manufacturer has minimized by releasing the drug Nazivin Sensitive with the addition of glycerin.
The tool is usually prescribed for heavy discharge from the baby’s nose, for the prevention and treatment of otitis media and during preparation for various diagnostic procedures. The maximum course of treatment is 7 days.
The cost of a bottle with a capacity of 10 ml about 140 p. (35 UAH), the tool is used very economically, however, it should be remembered that after opening it can be stored for no more than one year.
Personally, I like Nazivin very much. In winter, it sometimes happened that my daughter had increased discharge from the spout. Being aware of the children’s tendency to otitis, I used the drug before going out for preventive purposes.
The indications for this drug are the same as for the above described competitors (swelling of the mucous membrane, rhinitis, sinusitis, preparation for surgery), only the active substance is different.
What confused me was the absence of a separate form of the drug for children younger than 1 year old (unlike Nazivin, for example), and it is very careful to use vasoconstrictor drugs for newborns, it can be fraught with muscle spasm in any part of the body. .
The cost of a bottle with a capacity of 15ml – about 150r. The instructions do not indicate how long the drug can be stored after opening the package, but it is indicated that the course of treatment should not last longer than 7 days.
Compared with Nazivin, Vibrocil for my daughter was completely ineffective. The effect after it is about the same as after Euphorbium or plain water, that is, no. It is possible that this is an individual reaction, because, my sister-in-law often uses Vibrotsil for her daughter, and says that she is very effective.
As in the case of other medications, before using drops for the nose should be familiar with the instructions and consult with the doctor. It is very important to choose the dosage of the drug, which corresponds to the age of your child.
Also, do not exceed the dose and the course of treatment, it can lead to such consequences as addiction, medical rhinitis (a symptom of rebound), less often – a heartbeat and sleep disturbance.
And what kind of drops do you use for children?
