Otrivin Saline helps to loosen the viscous nasal discharge produced in the nose because of cold or allergic reaction. It makes it easier to keep nasal passages open by washing out dried and thick mucus. It also helps clear the sinuses by improving the function of cilia. Further, saline moistens dry and irritated nasal cavities caused by low humidity.1,2
What’s more, Otrivin Saline nasal spray cleans out your nasal cavities to help eliminate pollutants such as dust and other fine particles lingering in the air, which may cause nasal congestion.
How it works
Otrivin Saline is an isotonic solution that washes away the excess mucus that may be produced during a cold, or if you suffer from allergic conditions by decreasing the viscosity of the mucus, making it thin and loose for easy removal. It also cleans nasal cavities to help eliminate pollutants and fine particles that may have entered your nose from the air. Otrivin Saline nasal spray can also be used for general nasal hygiene to help keep your nose free of common pollutants, such as dust, during the day.1,2
