OCEAN® Saline Nasal Care and Allergies

Types of Allergies

Allergies are a leading cause of chronic illness in the United States, affecting millions of Americans of all ages. Some common allergies include:

  • Airborne pollen allergies
    symptoms triggered by trees, grass, weeds, and flowering plants.

  • Mold allergies
    symptoms set off by mold, mildew and fungi both indoors and outside.

  • Dust mite allergies
    symptoms activated by tiny insects, and their fragments that can live in carpets, furniture, bed linens, mattresses, and house dust.

  • Pet allergies
    symptoms caused by animal dander.

Relief for Your Nose

A number of simple treatments can help relieve the runny or stuffy nose that often accompanies allergies:

  • Breathe in the steam from a warm shower, a stovetop kettle, or a pot of boiling water to help loosen mucus.

  • Drink plenty of liquids, such as water, juice, or tea. Caffeinated beverages can cause dehydration and potentially aggravate symptoms.

  • Take an oral decongestant in liquid or tablet form. Decongestant nasal sprays may be helpful but should be limited to 3 days of use in a row, unless recommended by a doctor, as they can frequently cause rebound stuffiness and other side effects with prolonged use.

  • Use an over-the-counter saline nasal spray like OCEAN® several times a day.

Why Choose OCEAN® Saline Nasal Care

Many allergists recommend the use of a non-medicated saline nasal spray as a safe way to thin the mucus and rid the nasal passages of harmful irritants. Unlike medicated sprays, saline nasal allergy products may be applied as often as needed. They are frequently recommended along with nasal steroids and other prescription medications, which can have a drying effect on the nose, can be uncomfortable and can lead to nosebleeds.

All OCEAN® Saline Nasal Care products are non-medicated, safe for all ages, can be used as often as needed and may be used in conjunction with other medications. OCEAN® Saline Nasal Spray has been #1 pharmacist recommended non-medicated nasal saline moisturizer for 15 years in a row*. OCEAN Complete® Sinus Rinse (for nasal sinus irrigation and nasal moisturizing), OCEAN for Kids® Saline Nasal Spray (specially formulated for infants and children), and OCEAN Gel® Nasal Moisturizer (for sore, irritated noses) are also available.
