To make sure VIROSTOP delivers the utmost health benefits for your child, it's essential to use it correctly. Learn how to apply it effectively.
Visiting children's groups also brings a season of runny noses, flu, and sore throats. If you prefer natural treatment, use VIROSTOP for your child. Not only does it alleviate symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections, but it can also directly block viruses. What should we know about its use in children?
When should we reach for VIROSTOP?
VIROSTOP solution is based on natural ingredients and contains extracts from up to five different plants. Their precise combination is the result of intensive research, leading to the creation of a patented blend of extracts. When applied locally to the surfaces of the nasal and oral mucosa, it forms a protective film, acting as a mechanical barrier against viruses. The natural substances it contains can envelop binding sites for a wide spectrum of viruses, effectively preventing them from attaching to cell surfaces, entering cells, and initiating an infection.
VIROSTOP should be used for any upper respiratory viral infection and in situations with an elevated risk of infection. However, the dosage slightly varies between acute infection and preventive use, so so always read the enclosed leaflet first.
From what age can children use VIROSTOP?
All VIROSTOP products are suitable for children aged 3 and older. However, VIROSTOP pastilles are designed to dissolve slowly in the mouth by sucking, so they should only be given to children who are capable of sucking. As with any medicine, medical device, or nutritional supplement, these should be administered to children only under the supervision of an adult.
VIROSTOP contains plant extracts. Does it affect its properties?
Certainly. The natural origin of VIROSTOP solution is evident at first glance. The solution undergoes minimal processing, which results in its slightly brownish color, typical of plant extracts. It's important to keep this in mind during application. For children who may resist when the spray is administered, it's better not to apply it immediately before sending them to preschool or school, as an accident could potentially cause the solution to lightly stain clothing. Don't worry; it can be easily washed out, but such an incident in the morning can cause delays.
The plant-based origin of the solution is also noticeable in its taste and smell. It might take a little time for the child to get used to it, but let's not give up. VIROSTOP is genuinely beneficial for their health.
How to properly apply VIROSTOP nasal spray ?
Before the first application, prepare the spray bottle by pressing the applicator several times until the solution comes out in the form of a fine mist.
Many people use nasal sprays, but not everyone applies them correctly. The key is to apply them to a clean nose. Therefore, it's essential to blow your nose properly and clear any accumulated mucus before using the VIROSTOP nasal spray.
Since VIROSTOP is administered in the form of a spray, the child should tilt their head slightly downward, as if reading a book. Place the top of the spray near one nostril, block the other with a finger, and administer the spray. Repeat the process on the other side.
Even though the child might want to blow their nose immediately, we need to explain that the spray requires some time to take effect on the mucous membrane. Use a tissue to gently wipe away the solution that naturally drips out of the nose, and wait for a few minutes.
What if the child doesn't tolerate nasal medication? Is the bottle safe for more challenging applications?
Of course, when designing the spray, we also considered this situation. The VIROSTOP nasal spray bottle is made of plastic and cannot be shattered. Its top is sufficiently large and rounded, so there's no risk of it injuring a child's nostril or going in too deeply.
Is it better to choose a nasal or oral spray?
A viral upper respiratory tract infection never affects just an isolated part of the mucous membrane, whether it's in the nose, nasopharynx, or oral cavity. It always affects them all at once, which is why, for maximum effectiveness, it's necessary to apply a protective film to the largest possible surface. We recommend always using the nasal spray in combination with one of the oral application forms. You can choose either the VIROSTOP oral spray or pastilles for this purpose.
How to appropriately treat the mucous membrane of the oral cavity and throat?
For oral administration, you can choose between VIROSTOP oral spray and pastilles. When using the oral spray, aim to cover as much of the throat's surface as possible, so don't just spray it in one spot; instead, slightly rotate it while applying. In children, for preventive use, administer 2 sprays at once, and for treating an infection, use 3 sprays.
With VIROSTOP pastilles, it's somewhat easier because slow sucking allows the solution to gradually coat the entire mucous membrane of the mouth and throat when swallowed.
When to choose oral spray and when VIROSTOP pastilles in children?
The ratio of plant extracts is the same in the VIROSTOP oral spray, nasal spray, and pastilles. When dissolved in a watery solution, whether in the spray or after taking the pastilles, they can adhere to the mucous membrane and create a protective film on it. Therefore, the choice of application form is up to you, or more precisely, up to your child's preference. However, please remember that VIROSTOP pastilles can only be given to a child who can safely suck.
In the treatment of acute infections, we must also consider that by using sprays interchangeably within the family, we can transmit viruses from one member to another. Each family member should have their own appropriately labeled package.
Don't forget, VIROSTOP is also suitable for adults, so when your child brings home one of those stubborn kindergarten viruses again, you can also take advantage of it.
