nose spray tips?

son (4 3/4) is starting tonight a steroid nasal spray. He's picked up on my anxiety, I think, and has informed me he isn't going to get them. I've bribed him (yeah yeah, I know..) with a new Vsmile game to do "just this once" so I need to make it as untraumatic and DRAMATIC as I can. We've never done any kind of drops or sprays before. Have u? There is literally NO instructions... and the pharmacist at our walgreens was on dinner break. :(

  • Have him look at his toes when you spray the stuff in his nose. I HATE nasal sprays and they don't even touch my allergies.

  • My 5yr old takes flonase 4 allergies. We explained it doesnt hurt and he has to sniff then demonstrate. Then we insert the tip & count to 3 then spray. Good luck!
