What is Benylin Dry & Tickly Cough syrup?

Benylin Dry & Tickly Cough syrup is a solution that is designed to treat the effects of a dry and tickly cough. Using the active ingredients glycerol and sucrose, this Benylin medicine will lubricate a sore throat and reduce the effects of a cough.


What causes a dry, tickly cough?

A dry or a tickly cough is a cough where no mucus is produced. A cough is most often a symptom of an illness, such as a cold or flu. Though, a long-term cough can also be as a result of a more serious underlying issue. A cough can also be caused by an allergic reaction such as hay fever. A cough occurs because it is the body trying to clear something from the throat, but unlike with a mucus cough, nothing is produced.


Who is this Benylin Cough Medicine suitable for?

This cough medicine is suitable to be used by adults and aged 1 and over. It is not suitable for anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the syrup. Anyone who has an intolerance to some sugars, or has done in the past, should speak to a medical professional before using.
