This is in response to the reviewer's suggestion to put vaseline in your nose instead of this product. You can not buy the Ayr products, I don't care, but don't use vaseline instead - it can get into your lungs and cause a respiratory problem, lipoid pneumonia. Run a web search for "vaseline in nose" and you'll pick up plenty of articles. And the vaseline package specifically warns against putting it in your nose.

Before finding Ayr Gel I would get daily nosebleeds no matter what I would do during the winter. Tried humidifying the air at home, but the dryness outside and at work were enough to cause at least two bleeds per day. I didn't want to stick Vaseline or vicks up my nose because I hear that causes more problems with the petroleum. And using nasal sprays too much will rot out your passages because they constrict the vessels and limit blood flow. I was contemplating getting a cauterization procedure done because the bleeding was so bad and embarrassing.

Thank goodness I found this gel that can be applied in the nose. I did find that the way you apply it makes a big difference. Best way is just to take a 3/4 rice grain size dab on the tip of your finger and wipe it right in the entrance of your nose. Then massage the outside of each nostril to spread it all over the inside evenly. It lasts all day unless you have a runny nose and are blowing all the time. If you just stick the dab way up in your nose it doesn't get spread around and you'll likely just blow it out nor cover everything that needs to be protected.

Once I got this figured out I have not had ANY bleeds by applying the gel just once a day (in the morning).. I am truly amazed it has worked as well. No more having to carry a wad of kleenex around in my pockets!

I have noticed that if I let the tube get dirty or gunked up, the gel starts to burn a little when applied, so keeping it clean is essential. I average about one tube per 2-3 weeks from November to March. Obviously in my case a few bucks is worth not bleeding to death every day!

If you are on a CPAP or Oxygen this gel helps keep your nose from drying out. It's better than a humidifier for me because I was always getting sinus infections from the moisture. This gel works great.Ayr Saline Nasal Gel, With Soothing Aloe, 0.5-Ounce Tubes (Pack of 4)

My physician recommended that I use Ayr Nasal Gel to relieve dryness in my nasal mucous membrane that caused an occasional nose bleed. The product works well and I was able to purchase the product from Amazon for about half of what it cost locally. The service was excellent and I heartily recommend the product and Amazon.

Saline nasal gel is longer-lasting than just plain saline. The humidifying effect reminds me of a cool, misty, spring morning. Usually lasts all night; in extremely dry environments you may need to use a bit more than one application during the night.

This gel is also very useful on long airline flights where your nose gets overly dried-out -- just apply a little dab under each nostril every few hours and you'll breathe more easily the whole flight!

I have been using Ayr gel for over a year whenever my nose gets irritated, such as with a cold. Before applying, I first clean my nose with saline spray. Then I put as much Ayr on the end of a Q-tip as possible and swab the entire inside of my nose once or twice a day. If my nose is very irritated, the Ayr will burn for a few minutes but then it causes a warm glow. After a day or two the burning stops. PS: Use one end of the Q-tip on each nostril to avoid spreading infection.

The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was that the gel could be a little thicker.

I have found the ayr saline nasal gel to be an excellent product. I recommend it highly. My doctor suggested it. Only could find locally at Walgreens until I tried Amazon.com.

During Utah's dry winters, I experience daily nose bleeds. I've tried saline nose spray and humidifiers. After a particulary bad nose bleed lasting almost 24 hours, I researched other treatments. I had nothing to loose from trying the Ayr gel. THIS STUFF WORKS! I haven't had nose bleeds since using the product. I wish I would have known about it years ago. But two instructions for best success:

1. Put the get on the tip of the finger (not the bottom) and rub it all around INSIDE the nose & up as high as you can get it. (make sure your fingernail is cut short).
2. Look at your nose in the mirror about an hour later - sometimes there will be white stuff visible. You want to make sure you don't gross people out.
3. I have to use the product twice daily to prevent all bleeds.

This product changed my life; no more daily bleeds!

It's funny... I was just thinking that saline spray would be far more convenient in a gel form, just a month before I discovered this product on the store shelf. I live in a desert and this stuff is great for the dry, dry air. Unlike regular saline sprays which evaporate practically on contact, this gel stays moist for nearly an hour and is easily remoistened with a quick squirt of regular saline spray (which Ayr makes in a bottle that has a great tip). I use it just inside my nostrils, where the dry air does the most damage. No more cracked, ouchy insides! I've also found that my sinus passages are less dry and considerably less irritated when I use the gel on a semi-regular basis. I'm guessing that's the aloe?

I was put off by the stiff asking price of this product but for me it really is worth the cost. One tube has lasted me for several months now, and I use it practically every day, sometimes several times a day. That's probably the next best thing: Because it's saline and aloe, you can use it as much as you want. That's why I'm still giving this product 5 stars, despite the price.
