Why do I need Swype Shield?
You can shower and wash your face but that doesn’t do a good job of killing the viruses that cause colds and flu on the skin inside your nose. Applying Swype does that for you.
How do I use Swype Shield?
Wash your hands then apply a pea sized amount to the tip of your finger. Use your finger to apply the gel to the skin just inside your nostrils. You can pinch your nose to help spread it around. You can use a Q-tip to apply if you don’t want to use your finger. After 2 minutes you can wipe away the excess if needed.
How often should I use Swype Shield?
We have 10 years of experience with this product and have found that 3x/day works well.
Can I use too much?
No you are not going to cause harm by using larger amounts or applying Swype more often. It can cause some skin irritation in large amounts, if you experience this then please use less.
Why doesn’t the tube feel full?
We usually use a smaller tube with a slant tip but those tubes are made in China and were not available this winter when we needed them. The best tube we could find in the US is the larger tube with a flat tip we are using now. We fill by weight and there is 8gm in each tube. Because the tube is larger it doesn’t feel full and it takes more effort to get the product out. If you use a small amount for each application a tube typically last one person one month.
