Ultra Chloraseptic is an anaesthetic throat spray designed to provide fast relief from the pain of sore throats. It contains the active ingredient Benzocaine, which belongs to a group of medicines called local anaesthetics. Local anaesthetics work by numbing the area they are applied to. Three quick sprays is all that’s needed to numb a sore throat in a matter of seconds. Ultra Chloraseptic will work topically at the site of pain, providing effective relief from your sore throat without numbing the entire mouth. Each packet of Ultra Chloraseptic contains over 100 spray applications, which is the equivalent of 33 adult doses. You can choose between three flavours; cherry, blackcurrant and original menthol. Plus, Ultra Chloraseptic’s pocket sized bottle and protective cap makes it a convenient choice for on-the-go relief.
 
One adult dose of Ultra Chloraseptic is three sprays. For children (6-12 years), only one spray should be used. Ultra Chloraseptic can be used once every 2-3 hours up to a maximum of 8 doses in 24 hours. This product should not be used continuously for more than 3 days. If your sore throat has persisted beyond three days without improvement, you should seek advice from your local pharmacist. Also, if your sore throat is severe or accompanied by a fever, a headache or feelings of sickness, it is advised to visit your pharmacist.
 
Ultra Chloraseptic contains trace amounts of alcohol (0.006 units per spray) to dissolve the other ingredients. This product also contains propylene glycol, which can cause skin irritation.
 
Ultra Chloraseptic is designed to cause a temporary numbness of the throat. This effect is normal. Eating or drinking should be avoided until the numbness has subsided. Take care to avoid spraying this medicine into or close to eyes. Do not use near naked flames.
 
Sometimes Ultra Chloraseptic residue can dry and clog the nozzle, preventing normal operation. If this occurs, gently remove the white nozzle form the pump and run it under hot water to clear the dried-on residue.
 
A sore throat can be caused by two types of infection; viral and bacterial. A viral infection is the more common of the two. Viral infections will not respond to antibiotic treatment so the best course of action is to let the infection pass whilst treating the associated pain. One of the most effective methods of treating the pain of a sore throat is by using anaesthetic throat sprays, such as Ultra Chloraseptic.
 
Bacterial infections often result in a more serious sore throat, with severe cases requiring antibiotics treatment.
In the meantime, Ultra Chloraseptic can be bought over-the-counter and will help to relieve the associated pain of the sore throat whilst the antibiotics are working. However, sore throats that require antibiotic treatment only account for approximately 5%-10% of cases. For the majority of sufferers, your pharmacist should be the first port of call. The pharmacist will also be able to determine the type of infection, which can be identified by the presence/absence of yellow mucus in the throat. If there is such mucus, this will typically signify a bacterial infection.
 
It is normal for sore throats to last up to 10 days.

Adults, including the elderly and adolescents 13 years and over: 

  • Use 3 sprays to the back of the throat. 
  • Repeat every 2-3 hours to a maximum of 8 doses in 24 hours.

  • Use 1 spray to the back of the throat.
