The hydrophilic properties of octenisan® md nasal gel ensure efficient moisturising of the nasal vestibules. The moisturising effects of hydrogel promote a favourable physiological milieu which prevents the settlement of bacteria. Furthermore, restoring the physiological functions of protection and cleaning contribute to effective decontamination of e.g. particle, skin residuals and multiresistant pathogens. Irritated skin underneath the nasal opening is 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.
octenisan® Nasal Gel is used for moistening and decontamination of multi-drug resistant organism (MDRO) by physical cleaning of the nasal vestibule. External influences can cause the nose to rapidly dry out and become irritated. This can be remedied by supplying the nasal vestibule with sufficient moisture.
Unless otherwise prescribed, octenisan® md nasal gel should be used up to twice a day as needed. octenisan® md nasal gel is for use in the nasal vestibules and on the skin underneath the nasal opening only. Administration in the nasal vestibules: The gel should be applied 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, when used in the nasal vestibules, octenisan® md nasal gel should be inserted into the nostril, the nose should be closed by pressing on the side and then massaging 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 to be removed with a cotton swab. It should be ensured that a moist film remains. Direct contact with the opening of the tube must be avoided to prevent contamination with germs. Administration underneath the nasal opening: The gel should be applied e.g. with a cotton swab in a sufficient quantity on the irritated skin underneath the nasal opening, so that the surface is completely covered. It should be ensured that a moist film remains.
