What are decongestants?
Decongestant is an action that helps provide relief from a stuffy nose and clogged sinuses, which might be the symptom of cold, flu, sinusitis, hay fever, catarrh, and various other allergic reactions. They reduce the swelling of blood vessels and tissues that cause blockage.
They are vasoconstrictors that activate certain receptors on the blood vessels of the nasal mucosa, restricting the blood flow through the blood vessels found in the regions, thus shrinking the tissues and reducing the inflammation for a better breathing experience.
