What is Numark Sore Throat Spray?

Numark Sore Throat Spray is a soothing spray that helps to ease pain and irritation caused by a sore throat. It gets to work quickly, relieving your pain so your throat can heal in its own time. If you’re looking for a way to ease sore throats in those aged 13 and over, Numark Sore Throat Spray could be exactly what you’re looking for.

 

Why do I have a sore throat?

It didn’t work as well as I hoped. If your eta sore throat, use an anti inflammatory drug like ibuprofen. Works much better
