Feel the power with Covonia's new pharmacy only sore throat range

A Pharmacy Magazine and Thornton & Ross promotion

Up to 95 per cent of sore throats are caused by a virus1 e.g. common cold, which can be treated without antibiotics and a trip to see a GP. Customers with a viral sore throat infection can manage their symptoms with over-the-counter medicines and self care advice. Antibiotics should only be used to treat serious bacterial infections.

For those looking to ease the pain and discomfort caused by a viral sore throat, the NHS recommends over-the-counter medicines such as medicated lozenges and anaesthetic throat sprays.2

                                                            

NEW Covonia Medicated Sore Throat 5mg/1mg Lozenges have a dual action formula that numbs pain (lidocaine hydrochloride) and fights infection (chlorhexidine dihydrochloride). The lozenges are sugar-free and suitable for people with diabetes, vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs. Available in two flavours – lemon and menthol to provide soothing relief from sore throats.3

Also adding to the growing Covonia range this winter - the UK’s fastest growing throat spray4, Covonia Sore Throat Spray, is now available in a NEW lemon flavour. The dual action formula contains an antibacterial to fight infection (chlorhexidine gluconate) and a local anaesthetic (lidocaine hydrochloride) to numb the pain. The throat spray is sugar-free and suitable for people with diabetes, vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs. Contains up to 100 doses per 30ml spray.
