FESS Nasal & Sinus Wash Extra Strength sachets are deep penetrating, preservative free non-medicated hypertonic saline wash to relieve nasal and sinus congestion due to allergies, hayfever, sinusitis, colds and flu. When mixed with warm water, the contents of each sachet will produce a 200mL saline wash.
The hypertonic solution (ie. more concentrated) draws mucous from the sinuses to relieve sinus pressure.
Sodium chloride (20mg/mL when reconstituted)
Empty contents of one sachet of FESS Nasal & Sinus Wash Extra Strength into the squeezy bottle. Pour previously boiled lukewarm water into the bottle to the line marked. Screw cap onto the bottle and gently shake until powder dissolves.
Lean or bend over a basin and place the cap gently inside the right nostril. Keeping your mouth open, gently squeeze the bottle using a pulsing action. Whenever the bottle needs to fill with air, remove the cap from the nose before you release your hand pressure. This prevents 'suck back' and helps to keep the remaining solution clean.
Allow half the solution to wash through the nasal passages and sinus cavity and come out of the left nostril. Using the remaining solution, repeat this process in the left nostril. A small amount of the solution may enter your throat. This is not harmful. If necessary, blow your nose when you have finished. Discard any remaining solution you do not intend using within the next 2 hours. Wash the bottle cap, and tube thoroughly after each use and allow to drip dry.
It may be used during pregnancy and while breast feeding. This medication must only be used by one person. Sharing this dispenser may spread infection. If congestion persists, please see your doctor. If symptoms persist, see your doctor. Do not use if your nasal passages are completely blocked or if you have an ear infection.
