Rhinitis is a very common ailment, which often affects both children and adults. Discharge from the nose can accompany some cold and viral diseases, allergies, and also can occur as a reaction to external stimuli - smoke, dust, etc. In order to help get rid of the common cold, any pharmacist can offer a variety of medications: drops, ointments, sprays and even tablets. However, most patients reasonably believe that a nasal spray from the common cold is the most convenient form of application.
First, the nose spray is dosed - that is, you can accurately calculate the dosage, without fear of excessive application of the drug to the mucosa. Secondly, the shape of the spray allows the active substance to penetrate into all hard-to-reach areas of the nasal cavity, which can not be achieved with the help of drops and, especially, ointments. And, third, to make several injections of spray is much more convenient than throwing back the head to apply drops.
However, it must be borne in mind that the cold sprays have a different mechanism of action, therefore they are intended for the treatment of different types of disease. After all, as we already noted above, the common cold can be caused by different reasons. This is usually the cause of the doctor, and on the basis of the data obtained appoints or recommends a specific medication.
