Thank you for answering my comment. It's so very important to people like me to know that we are being heard.
Your product is amazing, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be able to use them. I do use them 24/7, except once or twice every month when I give my nose a rest from the adhesive. I don't mind the way they look, although a clearer center (or 'shadowed' like the inside of the nose) would be helpful (this is what others tell me when they look at me wearing them).
They are so much nicer than a mask, which is too hot for where I live. I have bad hot flashes a lot so masks of any kind are out. And Texas is too humid as well for me to use them.
I kept good records of the last six months using these, as I was of the mind that if they did not stick in Texas weather, then I would not continue to use them. I thought it was nothing more than a pipe dream that they would. Much to my surprise, although they had difficulties, the difficulties were not insurmountable with a little help from skin prep. (If you want a record of my actual difficulties for your records let me know)
WOW!! I have gone through all the hot summer months (in the 100's) with these, and its been FANTASTIC! While a few in some packages did not stick well at all, (and sometimes I sweat the adhesive right off) the rest did very well.
I have been out and about all summer, and that is the biggest, hugest difference so far. No more nights sleeping on a chair because I couldn't lay down with severely stuffed up sinuses (even with 3 zyrtecs in me!) just because I went out for a few hours. I can walk to my daughter's house without taking Kleenex with me. IT'S AMAZING! I wore them to my daughter's wedding as well, which was outdoors, and we were there for hours celebrating. I had no repercussions, either! I can dust and sweep my house without sneezing and dripping all over the place, which interferes with my cleaning.
The other major difference is that I quit taking zyrtec all during those six months, except for the days I let my nose rest from the adhesive. That right there is absolutely life changing! NO MORE POPPING PILLS! I don't know if you can understand what a relief it is to be able to not take pills, powders or anything internally that might have severe side effects years later, just to be able to function. This, to me, is a VERY BIG DEAL.
I don't seem as susceptible to colds as much, either, since when I'm around other people I am wearing these. I wash my hands a lot anyway, but usually I get a cold anytime the weather changes a little bit, and its not happening. I didn't get sick during spring (which Texas actually had this year!), and have not been sick At all these six months now that I think of it. It also relieved the sinus pressure that was apparently causing my teeth to ache. That was a pleasant surprise.
They are slightly more expensive than the zyrtec they replaced, but they work 100 times better. Thank you so much for creating these! And yes, you can use this to tell everyone who will listen that this product is AWESOME and deserves a lot of attention. I'm telling everyone I know.
