introduction

The Nasic® nasal spray for children is a nasal spray specially developed for children between the ages of 2 and 6 years. Due to a lower dosage of the active ingredient compared to normal nasal spray Xylometazoline the child's nasal mucosa is spared. At the same time, it contains ingredients that promote wound healing in the area of ​​the nasal mucosa. It is mainly used for a blocked and runny nose, as it occurs as a symptom of a classic cold.

Areas of application

Due to its decongestant effect, Nasic® nasal spray can be used for children in the context of various diseases. Most often it is used for stuffy and runny nose and runny nose.
In addition, the nasal spray is also widely used in clinics. In addition to the supportive effect in the treatment of skin and mucous membrane damage in the area of ​​the nose, it can also improve restricted breathing after surgery on the nose.
The nasal spray can also be used for other diseases in the ear, nose and throat area. In the case of inflammation of the paranasal sinuses, the nasal spray improves the symptoms due to its decongestant effect. In the case of otitis media, the decongestant effect allows the middle ear to be better ventilated and thus the infection to heal.

effect

The nasal spray for children by Nasic® combines two active ingredients: Xylometazoline and Dexpanthenol. Xylometazoline is found in numerous nasal sprays and causes the vessels in the area of ​​the nasal mucosa to contract. As a result, less secretion gets into the nose and the mucous membrane swells. To protect the child's nasal mucosa, Nasic® nasal spray for children offers xylometazoline in a significantly lower dose.
By combining with Dexpanthenol the damaged mucous membrane is also spared and wound healing is stimulated at the same time. As part of the infection, small tears develop in the area of ​​the nasal mucosa. The healing of these wounds is supported by the action of Dexpanthenol. Nasic® nasal spray for children contains the same dose of dexpanthenol as Nasic® nasal spray for adults.

Side effects

With the proper use of Nasic® nasal spray for children, side effects are rare. Occasionally (1 to 10 in 1000 patients) hypersensitivity reactions in the skin and mucous membrane area may occur. These are intolerances to the ingredients of the nasal spray. The hypersensitivity reactions can manifest themselves as a rash, itching or increased swelling. In addition, in rare cases (1 to 10 in 10,000 patients) side effects in the cardiovascular system are to be expected. These can be felt as palpitations, a faster pulse, or a slight increase in blood pressure. These side effects are due to the fact that the active ingredient reaches the bloodstream even in low concentrations and can affect other vessels and the heart. In very rare cases, restlessness, insomnia, fatigue and headaches are also possible.
With long-term or high-dose use of Nasic® nasal spray, the nasal mucosa increasingly dries out. The immune system is weakened locally due to the reduced production of mucus in the nose. There is a risk of colonization by other pathogens and, in some cases, severe inflammation.
In addition, abrupt discontinuation of high-dose therapy can lead to a so-called Rebound phenomenon come. This means that shortly after stopping the treatment, increased swelling of the nasal mucosa occurs reactively.
