Otrivine Child Nasal Drops

Otrivine Child Nasal Drops gently help to clear a blocked nose in children aged 6-12 years old, providing relief from nasal congestion caused by colds, hayfever and other allergies (perennial and allergic rhinitis) and sinusitis. The active ingredient is xylometazoline hydrochloride which helps to open up and clear the nasal passages by reducing the excessive nasal secretions and returning the swollen blood vessels to their normal size.
