Home first aid kit: remedies for sore throat

Feb­ru­ary 26, 2016, 12:30

Who among us does not have a sore throat? And regard­less of the time of year and the weath­er out­side the win­dow. So the body sig­nals the dan­ger — the inva­sion of virus­es or bac­te­ria. It is impor­tant not to ignore this symp­tom and imme­di­ate­ly take up treat­ment. Stop­ping the spread of infec­tion at an ear­ly stage is much eas­i­er. To do this, your home first aid kit should have effec­tive reme­dies.

We go to the phar­ma­cy, usu­al­ly when the pain in the throat becomes so severe that we have to gath­er our will into an iron fist to take anoth­er sip. Hav­ing bought a cov­et­ed med­i­cine, we expect a mir­a­cle — a quick deliv­er­ance from tor­ment. But it was not there! Time is lost, the infec­tion blooms with bright “pop­pies” on the mucous mem­brane of a flam­ing throat. There­fore, with­out wast­ing time, let’s start replen­ish­ing it right now.

Rinse aids

It is rather prob­lem­at­ic to cure a throat with­out reg­u­lar fre­quent rins­es. These pro­ce­dures help to wash away virus­es and pathogens from the sur­face of the throat, which are the cause of the dis­ease. Med­i­cines, in turn, help relieve inflam­ma­tion, irri­ta­tion, reduce pain, and also reduce the activ­i­ty of pathogens. It is good if there are anti­sep­tic and anti-inflam­ma­to­ry agents in the first-aid kit. Gar­gling with infu­sions of herbs will also help: pour chamomile, cal­en­du­la, euca­lyp­tus in equal pro­por­tions with boil­ing water, cool, strain and gar­gle every 30 min­utes.

Always at hand should be spe­cial tablets for resorp­tion. Their com­po­si­tion, as a rule, includes com­po­nents that do not allow the infec­tion to spread, stop­ping the repro­duc­tion of bac­te­ria. For exam­ple, the com­bined Ger­man drug Tra­chisan. These are fast-act­ing lozenges with a pleas­ant mint fla­vor. It not only instant­ly relieves pain, thanks to the anes­thet­ic lido­caine, but after 15 min­utes reduces bac­te­r­i­al “con­t­a­m­i­na­tion” of the mouth and throat by 90%, which is ensured by the com­bi­na­tion of the anti­sep­tic chlorhex­i­dine and the unique top­i­cal antibi­ot­ic tyrothricin, which acts only local­ly with­out dam­ag­ing the gas­troin­testi­nal tract. tract and its ben­e­fi­cial microflo­ra. There­fore, they can treat even chil­dren from 4 years old. And since Tra­chisan does not con­tain sug­ar, then peo­ple suf­fer­ing from dia­betes will find a sav­ior in it for prob­lems with the throat. Also, Tra­chisan will eas­i­ly elim­i­nate inflam­ma­tion of the gums and oral mucosa. Stom­ati­tis, gin­givi­tis, peri­odon­ti­tis can­not resist its pow­er. And even when remov­ing the ton­sils or at the den­tist’s appoint­ment, he will not let you down, not giv­ing the infec­tion a chance to devel­op.
