Accord­ing to sta­tis­tics, an adult suf­fers about three SARS per year, and a child up to six. You can catch the infec­tion at any time of the year, both in cold win­ters and hot sum­mers, not to men­tion autumn and spring, when not only acute dis­eases occur, but chron­ic ones also become aggra­vat­ed.

Cough is a frequent companion of a cold

This symp­tom sug­gests that the body does not sleep and, try­ing to pro­tect us, frees the air­ways from accu­mu­lat­ed spu­tum, dust par­ti­cles, and var­i­ous chem­i­cals. If not for him, any minor inflam­ma­tion of the res­pi­ra­to­ry tract would end in pneu­mo­nia. But effec­tive is a pro­duc­tive cough with spu­tum. It is also called wet. In the mucosa of the res­pi­ra­to­ry tract, nature has cre­at­ed a mech­a­nism that can be com­pared to the device of an esca­la­tor in the sub­way, only instead of steps mov­ing towards the goal, spe­cial cil­ia advance the mucus in the cil­i­at­ed epithe­li­um. With inflam­ma­tion, their move­ment is hin­dered by swelling of the mucosa. Stag­nant mucus becomes thick, which makes it attrac­tive to microor­gan­isms, which show their “joy” by rapid repro­duc­tion and the desire to cap­ture an ever larg­er ter­ri­to­ry.

Help inhalation

One of the addi­tion­al means of treat­ing dis­eases of the bronchi and lungs is inhala­tion. To date, the painful­ly tedious sit­ting under the cov­ers over a ket­tle or a pot of steam has long been replaced by con­ve­nient inhalers. An inhaler is a device that con­verts drug solu­tions into aerosols. When using an inhaler, drugs are deliv­ered direct­ly to the res­pi­ra­to­ry tract of a per­son. As a result, the treat­ment of com­mon coughs and dis­eases such as bron­chi­tis, pneu­mo­nia or bronchial asth­ma is much more effec­tive and faster. Inhalers are: com­pres­sor, ultra­son­ic, saline, heat-moist. The choice of an inhaler, med­i­cines for inhala­tion, the num­ber and dura­tion of pro­ce­dures, be sure to dis­cuss with your doc­tor.

How to properly treat a cough

You can’t hes­i­tate in such a sit­u­a­tion. We must help the body. And the herbal prepa­ra­tion PROSPAN® will help to win pre­cious time when choos­ing the right cough rem­e­dy. Why? The fact is that cough reme­dies are divid­ed into three groups: mucolyt­ics — drugs that thin spu­tum, expec­to­rants — which increase cough and spu­tum excre­tion, as well as seda­tives — reduce the activ­i­ty of the cough cen­ter. But if we talk about this drug, then thanks to the strength of the orig­i­nal ivy leaf extract, it can be used for any kind of cough — both dry and wet. At the same time, it also expands the bronchi, facil­i­tates breath­ing, which is espe­cial­ly impor­tant for obstruc­tive bron­chi­tis.

This drug is so safe that babies can be treat­ed with syrup from birth. The drug does not con­tain alco­hol, sug­ar, dyes. It has a pleas­ant cher­ry fla­vor. If you do not like to take drugs in syrup, then PROSPAN® is cre­at­ed for you in the form of forte effer­ves­cent tablets that dis­solve in a glass of warm or room tem­per­a­ture water. It is approved for use from 4 years of age. It has a taste famil­iar from child­hood — the taste of lemon­ade.
