Becodefence: Drug-Free Allergy Preventer

Most allergy treatments are there to treat the symptoms caused by allergies. However, Becodefence is a range of nasal sprays that are used to prevent allergy symptoms rather than treat the symptoms. Available products include Becodefence, Becodefence Plus, and Becodefence Kids nasal sprays. They are all available to buy without a prescription.

Who are Becodefence products for?

Becodefence products can be used for allergies like hay fever to prevent symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, itchy eyes, and watery eyes. All Becodefence nasal sprays are drug-free, so they are suitable for most people, including during pregnancy and breastfeeding. They are also suitable for athletes because they do not contain any steroids.

They are a great option for people who want to stop airborne allergens like pollen from entering the body before they can cause allergy-related symptoms. They are also a suitable add-on therapy for people who do not get enough relief from other therapies alone and can be especially useful if your nasal symptoms are still not under control. As Becodefence products are drug-free, you do not have to worry about them interacting with medications like antihistamines.

How do Becodefence products work?

Becodefence works by forming a protective gel layer barrier on the inside of your nose to trap airborne allergens and other particulates, preventing symptoms from occurring. Becodefence also helps diffuse allergens already in the nose and stimulates their clearance from the nose. Becodefence Plus works similarly but is a bit stronger. Becodefence Kids contains the same formula as Becodefence, but the tip of the nasal spray is smaller to deliver a smaller amount of spray.

Pharmacist recommended products

Should anyone avoid Becodefence products?

As always, do not use any product if you have previously had an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in it. Becodefence and Becodefence Plus nasal sprays are not suitable for children under twelve years, and Becodefence Kids nasal spray is not suitable for children under six years. If you are unsure whether Becodefence will be suitable for you, speak to your pharmacist.

Are there any side effects?

Generally, Becodefence nasal sprays are unlikely to cause side effects. However, very rarely allergic reactions can occur. Symptoms of an allergic reaction may include watery eyes, rashes, and nasal complaints such as a runny or blocked nose, soreness, itching, and dryness. Stop using the product and seek medical advice if you think you may have suffered an allergic reaction.
