Breathe Right Advanced Nasal Strips

A.) Are they gluten free, and also if they do have any food product used in their "recipe" then what is it?
B.) Do they work?

I used them for awhile a couple years ago and they worked a little but the glue made my nose itch and I eventually got indentations on the sides of my nose where they adhered. Took a couple weeks for it to go away once I stopped.
I prefer pure saline nasal spray like Simply Saline and a dab of Vick's under my nose when I get the stuffies.

my understanding is that glue may contain gluten
I just called the Breathe Right folks and asked if the strips contain gluten. They said "no". Then I asked if the adhesive is derived from and "food product" such as corn, soy, etc. I was told that it says it is "a medical grade adhesive, an acrylic type"
I guess that means it has no "food product", right?
