What does FESS stand for?
FESS stands for Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery.
Do I need to pierce the nozzle to make it spray?
No, the bottle needs to be primed upon first use by spraying into the air a few times.
How do I use the product?
(As per pack instructions) Direct the nozzle into your right nostril and aim the nozzle towards
your right ear. Repeat on the left side-direct the nozzle into your left nostril and aim the nozzle towards your left ear.
Should I tilt my head during/after spraying?
It is not necessary however some people prefer to do so and tilt their heads sideways and forward/back. It is personal preference.
The spray runs out my nose when I use it.
The product is liquid and intended to clean and clear nasal passages so some liquid can be expected to run out of the nose. We recommend aiming the nozzle toward your left ear when spraying into your left nostril and vice versa. You could also try tilting your hear slightly backwards if lots of liquid is running out or placing a tissue directly underneath your nose to catch any that may run out.
I get a salty taste in the back of my mouth/throat- is this normal?
Yes this is normal as the nose, ears and throat are all connected.
There is no seal around the neck of the bottle.
The old screw-on pumps have been replaced with a more modern pump which cannot be removed from the bottle. This is an extra tamper evident feature. The shape is ergonomically
superior for the comfort of the user and contains grips on the sides for ease of use. Therefore, there is no longer any requirement for a seal on the bottle. However, there will still be a tamper
evident plastic sticker seal present on the top and bottom of the carton.
How often to use.
The spray is non-medicated so you can used as often as desired.

Yes, use FESS Nasal Spray 5-10 minutes prior to using a medicated nasal spray (steroid or antihistamine).
