Sore throat, now the #2 major symptom of COVID-19

 

Sore throat is one of the major symptoms experienced by people with Covid-19. Strepsils lozenges provide symptomatic relief of sore throat: they provide 2-in-1 defense by killing viruses and germs in as fast as 60 seconds, and provide deep down relief unlike gargles.


With the continued spread of COVID-19 that has sickened more than two million Filipinos, many fear that their dry coughs and sore throats may be a symptom of the dreaded disease. And it is a cause for concern as these two are some of the most common symptoms of COVID-19, according to the 
World Health Organization.

 

While there are no cures for COVID-19 currently, it is important to address symptoms as they come in order to recover faster. For sore throat, that means taking Strepsils lozenges at the first signs of throat discomfort.

 

Lozenges offer considerable advantage over a gargle

Results of a clinical study* suggested that among sore throat product formats, “lozenges offer considerable advantages over a gargle,” noting that lozenges offer faster, effective and longer relief for throat pain.

 

The same study found that lozenges were more advantageous than gargles and the benefits were seen in terms of proportion of medicine delivered to and cleared from the mouth and throat combined. 

 

Lozenges offer faster, effective, and longer relief for throat pain vs gargles

 

 

Unlike gargles which are expelled from the mouth, lozenges were kept in the mouth longer, providing a steadier supply of medicine to the throat. This results in greater activity in both the mouth and the throat for up to 20 minutes even after the lozenge is completely dissolved. Thus, the study conducted that lozenges provide fast, effective, and prolonged delivery of active ingredients beneficial for sore throat relief.

 

2-in-1 defense against symptoms of sore throat

 

Sore throats are a common symptom experienced by people with COVID-19.  Strepsils, the tried-and-tested lozenge brand for almost 50 years, has been indicated for the symptomatic relief of sore throat including those caused by COVID-19. It provides 2-in-1 defense by killing viruses and germs in as fast as 60 seconds and provides deep down long-lasting relief that last two hours, unlike gargles.
