Weak­ness, headache, sore throat — on the face are the first signs of an incip­i­ent cold. It is much eas­i­er to stop the devel­op­ment of the dis­ease at an ear­ly stage. Do not delay, but urgent­ly take up treat­ment.

What mea­sures will help pre­vent the devel­op­ment of a viral infec­tion and pro­tect against seri­ous com­pli­ca­tions?

Loading dose of vitamin C

When the first symp­toms of malaise appear, it is rec­om­mend­ed to strength­en the body’s defens­es so that it can inde­pen­dent­ly with­stand the attack of virus­es and bac­te­ria. Vit­a­min C (ascor­bic acid), well known to all of us, can help with this. Due to its antiox­i­dant prop­er­ties, it pro­vides pow­er­ful sup­port to the immune sys­tem. Dur­ing the treat­ment of colds, the dai­ly dose of vit­a­min C can be increased to 30–45 mg for chil­dren and 50–90 mg for adults. Sources of vit­a­min C are nat­ur­al foods such as lemons, oranges, kiwi, rose hips, green onions, red pep­pers, broc­coli, spinach, sauer­kraut, black cur­rants.

Clear mucous from bacteria

To stop the devel­op­ment of the dis­ease, you need to clean the mouth and throat of microor­gan­isms that caused inflam­ma­tion and sore throat. There are many tools that can stop the devel­op­ment of infec­tion: sprays, tablets, lozenges, lozenges, solu­tions. It has been exper­i­men­tal­ly proven that lozenges have a great ther­a­peu­tic effect. This is due to the fact that, when resorbed, the med­i­c­i­nal sub­stance grad­u­al­ly and com­plete­ly cov­ers the oral mucosa. it is quick­ly washed off with sali­va when swal­lowed. If we talk about prepa­ra­tions for resorp­tion, then the goal is to help the long-suf­fer­ing throat, but the meth­ods and pos­si­bil­i­ties are dif­fer­ent. It depends on the med­i­c­i­nal sub­stances that are part of the drug. It is ide­al that one drug com­bines the max­i­mum of prop­er­ties for the treat­ment of infec­tion and sore throat. For exam­ple, Tra­chisan lozenges con­tain a set of com­po­nents that pro­vide com­pre­hen­sive assis­tance to a sore throat.

The com­po­si­tion of Tra­chisan includes:

  • tyrothricin is a top­i­cal antibi­ot­ic that acts only local­ly, is not absorbed into the blood­stream, and there­fore does not cause tox­ic effects, does not irri­tate the mucous mem­brane, does not affect the intesti­nal flo­ra, affect­ing almost all known bac­te­ria, the most com­mon­ly detect­ed fun­gi and virus­es;
  • chlorhex­i­dine — the most famous and wide­ly used anti­sep­tic, which has a wide spec­trum of action on bac­te­ria, enhances the effect of tyrothricin and helps elim­i­nate inflam­ma­tion;
  • lido­caine is a local, most com­mon­ly used anal­gesic com­po­nent.

In order for Tra­chisan to cope with its duties (defeat­ed microbes, relieved inflam­ma­tion and pain), it must be absorbed, not chewed. Tra­chisan has a pleas­ant mint fla­vor, does not con­tain sug­ar, and is approved for use by chil­dren from 4 years of age.
