This throat spray is used to relieve sore and irritated throats, for example caused by cold or flu.
The throat spray is applied to the back of your throat and relieves symptoms such as pain, soreness, and irritation.
Covonia contains two active ingredients, Chlorhexidine Gluconate and Lidocaine Hydrochloride.
Chlorhexidine Gluconate is an antibacterial agent which helps to kill off bacteria in the throat.
The second ingredient, Lidocaine Hydrochloride, is a mild local anaesthetic which soothes and relieves pain and soreness.
Yes, but it can only be bought in a registered pharmacy, such as Chemist-4-U.
Covonia is classed as a Pharmacy medicine, meaning it is only allowed to be sold under the supervision of a pharmacist.
When you buy Covonia, the pharmacist will need to ask you a few questions. This is so they can make sure that the treatment is suitable for your symptoms and safe for you to use.
Most times a sore throat is simply caused by bacteria or a virus. When a virus or bacteria hits your body, it will respond with an inflammation.
An inflammation in the throat may make the area red, sore and swollen.
A sore throat usually gets better by itself within a few days, especially if it’s caused by a flu or cold.
However, if your symptoms get worse and you struggle to swallow while also having a fever or high temperature, you should consult your GP.
Side effects from using Covonia Throat Spray are rare, but like all medicines, it can cause side effects in some people.
It is important that you consult your GP or nearest surgery immediately if you notice any signs of an allergic reaction. Symptoms of an allergic reaction may include:
To soothe your sore throat, spray 3 to 5 times, up to 10 times per day.
Do not exceed the stated dose.
Keep out of sight and reach of children at all times.
Store the spray bottle in a cool place, below 25℃.
