Why Use FESS
If allergies are stopping you seeing the beauty of ‘hayfever season’, FESS non-medicated nasal decongestant can help. FESS is a non-medicated, pH-balanced saline spray that you can use as frequently as you like.
You can use FESS nasal spray for effective allergy relief – even while you’re pregnant, using other medicated treatment, or just enjoying the outdoors. Regular use of FESS helps provide four levels of hayfever relief:
- Washing away dust, pollen and other allergens
- Enhancing the effectiveness of your medicated hayfever spray*
- Naturally thinning mucus, so it flows more easily
- Stimulating normal ‘mucocilliary flow’ – the nose’s natural defense mechanism.
* By clearing mucus from the nasal passages before use.
Medicated Decongestant Sprays
Decongestants constrict the blood vessels in the nasal membranes, temporarily reducing the inflammation that causes nasal congestion. However, you should exercise caution when using medicated decongestants to relieve an allergy attack – and only use them for a short period. Continued use can cause swollen nasal membranes, which will re-block the airways as soon as the temporary effect of the decongestant spray wears off.

Antihistamines and Corticosteroid Nasal Sprays
Antihistamines help block the effects of histamine (the body’s chemical that triggers your allergic reactions). Nasal corticosteroids are anti-inflammatory drugs, designed to be taken daily throughout the hayfever season. To be effective they need to penetrate the nasal membranes, which are protected by a layer of waterproof mucus. For more information about treatments for nasal decongestion click here.
Because FESS is a non-medicated, pH-balanced saline spray, you can use it as frequently as you like on its own or to enhance the effectiveness of a medicated allergy treatment. It cleans and clears your nasal passages and stimulates the nose’s natural defense mechanism.
