Ear Drops & Nasal Sprays
The airways are one of the most sensitive parts of the human body. Through our nose we supply oxygen to our lungs, which in turn supplies oxygen to our brain and gives us life. Although we don’t breathe with our ears (duh!) the nasal canal is also connected to the ear canal. Complications such as ear infections can travel down to the nose and throat and cause further pain and discomfort. A particularly bad ear infection can give you symptoms like runny nose, cough, fever, vomiting, or dizziness, and even hearing loss. For these reasons, it is important to keep both our nasal and ear canals clear of any blockage or infection. This is possible using many of the ear drops, nasal sprays, and allergy medicines found on Zimgi.
When should I use ear drops & nasal sprays?
Ear drops and sprays are typically used to soften ear wax and extract infections. They can also be used to soothe intense inflammation and provide pain relief. They are an excellent solution for so called “swimmer’s ear” aka otitis externa which is a common infection of the outer ear canal.
Nasal sprays are best used during flu or cold-like symptoms to clear the airway, and they usually contain menthol to further help decongestion. You can use nasal sprays to provide moisture in the event of a “dry nose” that occurs during winter sickness.
On Zimgi you will find everything from strong anti-fungal drops such as Akustone Ear Drops and Auristone Ear Spray, to powerful nasal decongestants like Cosinus Spray.
