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.
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.
