A lot of people use nasal sprays, but a lot of people use nasal sprays incorrectly. Just follow these simple steps and we’ll have you feeling better, faster. First, blow your nose to get the mucous out. Take a quick look down, like you’re reading a book. Now, use the opposite hand to nostril and insert the nozzle straight back and aim outward away from the middle part of your nose. Most doctors suggest just a spray or two. Then, switch hands and repeat on the other side. You don’t want to sniff or blow your nose immediately after using your medicine. You’ll lose the good stuff that needs to stay put!
