So as not to get in contact with the eyes, and mouth. Said the pharmacist, reflected on the nose wall is not straight, but it’s rather difficult, so it goes out to the mouth, and it keeps on contact
Hello Annisa, thank you for asking.
Based on an online search, the type of topical substance you are referring to contains a composition of sea water and purified water. This means that the material contains only water and a little sea water, or material made similar to sea water. If this is the case, then no danger will arise if the liquid enters the child's eyes. However, it may cause a slight aching and redness in the eyes, which will disappear gradually.
Regarding the procedure for its use, it helps you consult with a pediatrician. The doctor will assess whether there really is a benefit to giving a nasal spray to the child and show the right procedure. Probably, the purpose of administering the fluid is the same as nasal irrigation in adults. Indeed, some experts claim that routine use of nasal irrigation in adults can reduce the risk of developing allergic rhinitis or recurrent sinusitis. But its use in children must still be studied. In addition, the procedure is also not as easy as in adults, because children do not understand the instructions. Therefore, you must be aware of the danger of choking on children. If you are not sure, don't give it to you. Consult with your doctor first.
Thus the answer from me, hopefully can help. Regards.
