Can nasal filter help to ease allergies?

Usually all of us have to face cold and allergies in our day to day lives. It leads to uneasiness and create problems in our work. To overcome these problems, scientists from Denmark University have discovered a new device that one can wear your nose that will help to filter out the pollen and other allergens. This device is of a contact lens size and will keep pollutants out of the sinus. It works in form of miniature air filter. The study shows that nasal filter could control daily sneezing 45 percent and daily running nose by 12 percent. The lead author Peter Kenney explain, “We found clinically relevant reductions in daily nasal symptoms with Rhinix compared to placebo, especially in sneezing, itching and runny nose symptoms. Depending on the filter's density, it blocks specific particles in the air—including pollen from grass, which is one of the most frequent causes of hay fever.”
