Afrin for Redness

Recommended Posts

"One common complaint that patients have is skin redness," said Arisa Ortiz, M.D., director of Laser and Cosmetic Dermatology at UC San Diego Health. "The redness may be a result of dry skin or rosacea, a condition that causes flushing of the face. For people with mild forms of rosacea, nasal sprays like Afrin can temporarily reduce redness."

Emily47 at RF (post no 54) reports, "I mixed Afrin and CeraVe (suggested my dermatologist) and it worked! Immediately less redness!"

According to Vitacost.com, oxymetazoline hydrochloride, 0.05 percent, the active ingredient in Afrin nasal spray, works by constricting, or shrinking, the blood vessels in the nose, and thereby reducing nasal blood flow. - livestrong.com
