Winter care for the whole family
The nights draw in, the weather changes and we catch colds. People get colds more often than any other illness, adults getting 2 a year while toddlers can get up to 10!
Antibiotics kill bacteria but won't cure a cold. That's because colds are not caused by bacteria but by a virus. The coughs and sore throats that accompany a cold can also be caused by a virus as well as by bacteria.
The misery of a cold
Thankfully, colds are not usually serious and clear up by themselves in just a few days. But they do make us miserable in the meantime. Particularly for little ones, some TLC can help to relieve the symptoms while the body deals with the virus.
A brand that cares
As one of UK pharmacy's widest ranges of products for coughs and sore throats, Care's tried and trusted remedies are great value and can help you provide that TLC for the whole family.
Blocked noses and colds
Inflammation narrows the nasal passages and mucus blocks them further, making breathing difficult. The Care range includes sugar-free, non-drowsy oral liquid and tablets plus nasal drops and inhalants to help relieve nasal congestion with products suitable for adults and some for children from as early as 3 months of age
Sore throats are common, especially in children and teenagers who have not yet built up resistance. Care has sore throat remedies, including sugar-free options, that are suitable for the whole family – with some for children as young as 1 year.
When phlegm or mucus builds up in the lungs, a cough is the body's mechanism to get rid of it. Care chesty cough mixtures help loosen phlegm and are suitable for adults and children over 12 including a variant for children from 5 years of age.
Often caused by inflammation in the throat, dry coughs can be persistent and are sometimes called 'non-productive' as there is no phlegm present. Care's dry cough remedies include sugar-free remedies that soothe and reduce the urge to cough, are available for adults and for children from 12 years and include products for children as young as 1 year.
Care children's cough/cold remedies meet government guidelines advising that certain ingredients should no longer be given to children under 6 years of age.
Whatever the problem, you can rely on the Care range to help you provide your family with all the care they need this winter.
