Thinking about that, the team at Strepsils have produced Strepsils Sore Throat and Cough. The combination of two antiseptics (2,4-Dichlorobenzyl alcohol 1.2 mg, Amylmetacresol 0.6 mg) and Levomenthol (a mild local anaesthetic) provide you with dual action for dual relief from your sore throat and irritating coughs.Causes of a Sore ThroatA sore throat is often a sign that you may have an infection in the area, but there are other things that can irritate the throat, causing redness and swelling. These include cigarette smoke, a polluted environment, voice strain or even changes in air temperature.There are lots of sore throat symptoms, and throat infection symptoms, from that nasty raspiness, pain when swallowing to a sudden husky voice. There are also other symptoms that may accompany throat pain:Runny noseSwollen glandsA headacheMuscle aches and painsCoughThroat problems, such as inflammation (redness and swelling) in your throat - this can even be a sore throat on one sideTreating Your Sore ThroatIf you have a sore throat already, to make yourself and your throat feel better there are some options:Drink plenty of warm liquids to keep your level of body fluids upTry to breathe through your nose. If your nose feels congested, inhaling the steam from a bowl of hot water will help it to clear or look for a lozenge which also offers a decongestantTry to avoid alcohol.
