Spring for some people can mean months of antihistamines, nasal steroids and avoiding nature. Why? Because this is the time for Allergies, Sneezing and Head Aches.

New solutions on the block – Nasal filters are tiny devices that claim to block pollen and other allergens from entering the nasal passages.

They are like small contact lenses you can put up your nose. Some are stick-on types while others clip on to your nose discreetly.

Clenare Nasal filters are one of the unique concepts aimed at combating seasonal allergies. Unlike most they are not use and throw and have replacement filters that can be easily changed every few days. Beats owning large Air Pur

ifiers which easily go upto Rs. 20,000 each.

Researchers say Nasal Filters have shown success in a small clinical trial. The study showed that the filters reduced throat irritation and runny noses in allergy sufferers when compared to a filter-less remedy.

Most people stop noticing the device after wearing it for an hour. Just like wearing spectacles for the first time the feeling of wearing Nasal Filters takes some time to get used to but then one hardly notices them after some time. And people don’t tend to switch breathing through their mouths also while they’re wearing them. This does not increase tendency of mouth breathing or throat irritation.
