In Croatia, 2.5 million people suffer from the cold each year. Children can have up to 8-12 colds a year while adults usually get 2-3 infections.
In case of an increased body temperature, an antipyretic drug is used to reduce the fever. Fluid intake must be increased (water, tea, fruit juice, soup) to avoid dehydration (drying) of the system which makes the condition even worse.
To reduce the possibility of colds, it is important to maintain nasal hygiene using Aqua Maris products. At the first symptoms, it is advisable to use Aqua Maris Clean for rinsing the nose to reduce the possibility of developing an infection. A stuffy nose can be treated with Aqua Maris Strong or Hypertonic, and Meralys HA is used for a severely stuffy nose.
Meralys HA nasal spray comes with a synergy of its three components: the drug xylometazoline, seawater, and hyaluronic acid (sodium hyaluronate) that provides additional moisture and protection to the nasal mucosa, and increases its elasticity and firmness. The product is preservative free for an increased safety of use.
If an acute viral infection of the upper respiratory system lasts for more than ten days, a bacterial superinfection has probably occurred and the symptomatic treatment also requires an antibiotic and gentle nasal rinsing to remove accumulated pathogens, cleanse and refresh the nasal mucosa.
