I just received my first order of the First Defense nasal screens yesterday evening. A competitor's product literally arrived in the mail at the same time.
I have suffered from allergies since my childhood. Pollen and animal dander are two allergens that affect me the most, with pollen being the most prevalent for me. A few years ago, I moved to the city I am in now. A city that prides itself in its prevalence of trees to the point where a city official has to give approval before urban trees can be removed or planted.
As you may be aware, tree pollen bothers a lot of allergy sufferers. Also, with many open fields that are undeveloped and that receive natural irrigation, weeds are quite prolific here. Following the daily pollen reports, this time of year, weed pollen pegs the 'very high' level for many days in a row.
Nasal congestion is the biggest symptom I suffer, though I also have a [delayed] skin reaction to airborne allergens as well. Due to federal law, pseudoephedrine [Sudafed] has become a restricted purchase drug. As this has been the only medicine that has ever been effective in opening my congested nasal passages, having to check the calendar to make sure I am under the legal limit and having to show my driver license before purchasing more has been an unwanted burden.
I actually tried the competitors product first. Despite the fact that the foam filters expanded my nostrils (to the point where it made my nose look bigger), I didn't notice any positive effect. I definitely wouldn't want to be seen at work or in public with the competitor's product. It actually made me look like I had just had my nose medically 'packed' due to an injury or surgery.
In contrast, after I removed the competitors product from my nostrils and applied First Defense, I could almost immediately feel the difference. My nasal passages felt more open and less congested almost immediately, and continued that way until I removed the product before going to bed. When I woke up, I wished I had not removed First Defense, and I am going to wear the product while sleeping.
As you are aware, it is difficult to find a viable solution for allergy sufferers to filter the air they breathe. Though various types of filter face masks are commonly available, for most people, it is not practical [or socially acceptable] to wear a mask throughout the day. I work in public safety, and unless an emergency is in progress, wearing a filter mask has a derogatory affect on dealing with the community I serve. With the prevalent flu pandemics and such, seeing someone in uniform wearing a mask causes most people some anxiety, and that can be counterproductive.
If my initial success with your product continues (which I am certain it will) First Defense will be a viable and practical solution to help relieve my allergy symptoms. As surgery with uncertain results is my only remaining alternative to relieving my nasal congestion issues, I have to say that First Defense is a welcome alternative.
Thank you for your time and consideration, and for inventing and developing a great product!»
