Dr. McMaster and Dr. Peterson both highly recommend Alkolol, a blend of natural ingredients that includes menthol, eucalyptol, wintergreen, spearmint, pine, and cinnamon. If you have discomfort from a cold, sinus infection, or recent nasal surgery, Alkolol will relieve some of your pain. It can be used as a spray in your nose or as a gargle. Follow package directions.
