Fields of Application

octenisan® md nasal gel is used for moistening and decontamination by physical cleaning of the nasal vestibules.
External influences can cause the nose to rapidly dry out and become irritated. This can be remedied by supplying the nasal vestibules with sufficient moisture. The moisturising effects of the hydrogel promote a favorable physiological milieu which prevents the settlement of bacteria. Furthermore, restoring the physiological functions of protection and cleaning contribute to effective decontamination. Lesions of the nasal epithelium are also supplied with moisture through the hydrogel and thus can heal optimally. Epithelial cells must be able to proliferate and migrate for the healing process. This is best possible in a moist wound environment.

Product Profile

Instructions for use

Unless otherwise prescribed, use octenisan® md nasal gel up to twice a day as needed. octenisan® md nasal gel is for use in the nasal vestibules only.

Apply the nasal gel e.g. with a cotton swab in a sufficient quantity to the frontal area of the nose (nasal vestibules), so that the surface is completely covered. For this purpose insert octenisan® md nasal gel into the nostril, close the nose by pressing on the side and then massage between thumb and finger. This ensures an even distribution of the gel.

If needed, the nose should be thoroughly cleaned before with a wet cotton swab. Excessive gel is removed with a cotton swab. Make sure that a moist film remains.

Direct contact with the opening of the tube must be avoided to prevent contamination with germs.
