The colder seasons are approaching which means coughs, sniffles, and sneezes are well on their way if they haven't came already! Adding a stuffy nose to that makes this time of year even worse. Don't let it get you down this time...Stick Up For Yourself! With Afrin.
Afrin is a no drip, fast and powerful congestion relief, nasal spray made to get the job done! It comes in a pump mist that delivers the measured dose needed and lasts for 12 hours! Afrin comes in 4 different types: Original, Extra Moisturizing, Sinus, and Severe Congestion. I tried out the Afrin Original, made for colds and allergies, and it couldn't have came at a better time. I've been battling a head cold for the past few weeks now and a stuffy nose has joined up in the fun.
As soon as I received Afrin in the mail, I tried it as quick as I could get the package open lol. I wanted that instant relief! I squirted two squirts in each nostril and within seconds, my nose felt so much better. I wasn't fond of the smell that came with it, but that passed quickly after. After a few minutes of the Afrin sitting in my nose cavity, I began to feel a cooling sensation in my nose, like the menthol in Vapor rub. It gave me a fresh, cool air feeling but kind of an odd burning sensation too. In the Drug Facts section of Afrin, it says not to use the product more then 3 days or burning, stinging or sneezing may occur, as well as an increase in nasal discharge. I had the increase in nasal discharge and slight burning, but this was after day 2 of using it. So I assume it just differs with each person.
Afrin is made for ages 6 and up and works great to unstuff the stuffiest of noses. Just make sure you use it as recommended and don't go over the usage directed.
