At least twenty-four (24) children, ages 2 to <12 years, and twelve (12) adolescents, ages 12 to <18 years, with nasal symptoms due to hay fever or other upper respiratory allergies will complete the study. To ensure that younger children are represented, at least 35% (8) of the 24 children enrolled will range from 2 to <6 years of age.


Inclusion Criteria: - Male and female children and adolescents, ages 2 to < 18 years, with a minimum weight of 24 pounds will be eligible to participate.
