Advice for Strepsils

Relieve Sore Throat and Cough with Strepsils

Sore throat and cough are common symptoms that can be caused by a variety of factors, ranging from allergies to viral infections. If you're looking for relief from these uncomfortable symptoms, Strepsils can be an effective solution.

The Role of Strepsils in Throat and Cough Relief

Active Ingredients in Strepsils

Strepsils contain active ingredients like amylmetacresol and dichlorobenzyl alcohol, which have powerful antiseptic and soothing properties. These ingredients work synergistically to relieve throat pain and reduce coughing.

Moreover, Strepsils also contains menthol, which provides a cooling sensation and helps to alleviate discomfort in the throat. This additional ingredient enhances the overall soothing effect of the lozenges, making them a popular choice for individuals seeking quick relief from throat irritation.

How Strepsils Work to Soothe Throat and Cough

When you suck on a Strepsils lozenge, the active ingredients are released and start working right away. They help to numb the pain receptors in your throat, providing quick relief. Additionally, the antiseptic properties of Strepsils help reduce the presence of harmful bacteria in the throat, preventing further infection.

Furthermore, the presence of dichlorobenzyl alcohol in Strepsils acts as a mild anaesthetic, further aiding in reducing throat pain and irritation. This dual-action approach of numbing the pain receptors and fighting off bacteria makes Strepsils an effective solution for individuals dealing with sore throats and coughs.
