What are Numark Maximum Strength Cold & Flu Relief Sachets?

These sachets are a form of treatment that works to provide relief for the symptoms associated with a cold and the flu. These sachets can treat a number of symptoms caused by the viruses, including a headache, aches and pains, a sore throat, a blocked nose, and a fever. The active ingredients contained in these sachets are paracetamol and phenylephrine. Paracetamol is a painkiller that will also help to reduce a fever. Phenylephrine is a decongestant that reduces swelling in the nasal passages, helping you to breathe easier.


What causes a cold or the flu?

A cold or the flu are both viruses that can spread through the air. This is due to someone who has been affected coughing, sneezing, or blowing their nose and droplets containing the virus getting into the air and lingering there. Touching surfaces can also lead to the spread of the virus if the hands are not washed properly. Cold weather does not make a virus more prominent, as a cold or flu can be caught at any time. However, cold weather usually means that people are more likely to stay indoors, where there will be other people who will be closer.
