Hayfever Relief Nasal Spray (Beclomethasone Nasal) helps to decrease nasal inflammation caused by allergens such as pollen, dust mites, and animal fur. It also helps to relieve the symptoms of hayfever and helps bring relief from running noses and stinging and streaming eyes.
This spray contains the active ingredient beclometasone, which helps to decrease inflammation in the nasal passages and prevent the impact of hayfever. Once Hayfever Relief is sprayed, the beclometasone is instantly absorbed into the nasal passages to help treat the symptoms.

Dosage for Adults (including the elderly) You will need to use the Beclometasone spray regularly. Squirt two sprays into each nostril twice a day, every morning and evening. Once you start to feel better, a single spray into each nostril twice a day may be enough to control your hay fever. Do not use more often than 8 sprays in 24 hours. If you feel no better after 10 days consult your doctor. You should not use Beclometasone continuously for longer than 3 months without consulting a doctor.

On first using the nasal spray, prepare for use by pressing down on the white collar using both your index and middle fingers. Keep the base supported with your thumb . Continue to press down until the collar stops and then allow to return to its original position. Repeat this action until a fine spray appears. The first five attempts to produce a spray should be allowed to go to waste. Now the spray is ready to use. 3. To use the spray, first blow your nose gently. Closing one nostril off as shown, bend your head forward slightly. Hold the bottle upright and carefully insert the applicator into your other nostril . 4. Slowly begin to breathe in through your nose and whilst doing so press down firmly on the white collar to produce a fine spray inside your nose. Breathe out through your mouth . 5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to squirt a second spray in the same nostril. Cleaning Wash the nozzle frequently with warm water. This will prevent it from getting blocked.
