Product description

VIRALEZE™ traps cold/respiratory viruses.

VIRALEZE™ Barrier Nasal Spray contains astodrimer sodium, also known as SPL7013 which has been proven to physically trap cold/respiratory viruses*. The nasal spray targets the area where cold/respiratory viruses first attach and start to multiply. By providing a protective moisture barrier in the nasal passage this helps to prevent cold/respiratory viruses multiplying and spreading by trapping them.

VIRALEZE™ Barrier Nasal Spray can be used anywhere and at any time you may be exposed to cold/respiratory viruses and where nasal passages may become dry and irritated, such as dry climates, indoor heated/air-conditioned environments, hospitals, public transport and during air travel.

VIRALEZE™ is a medical device which contains astodrimer. Always read the label. Ask your pharmacist for advice.

    One spray into each nostril as required, up to 4 times per day.

    1. Gently blow your nose to clear your nasal passages.

    3. Remove the protective cap from the nozzle.
    4. Hold the bottle with your index and middle fingers on each side of the bottle and your thumb on the bottom of the bottle.
    5. If necessary, prime the bottle by spraying VIRALEZE™ one or more times into the air or into a tissue until a fine mist is dispensed.
    6. Close one nostril by pressing on that side of your nose, and gently insert the nozzle into the other nostril (the tip should be pointing backwards and slightly angled away from the midline of the nose).
    7. Keeping the bottle upright, depress the pump to discharge the spray while gently breathing in through the nose.
    8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 for the other nostril.
    9. Wipe the nozzle with a clean tissue and replace the protective cap after use. Store out of reach of children.

    Please note if you blow your nose after spraying VIRALEZE™ Barrier Nasal Spray you will need to respray.
