What are Potter’s Chesty Cough & Catarrh Pastilles?
Potter’s Chesty Cough & Catarrh Pastilles are a remedy for coughs, colds, and catarrh which are ideal for those who don’t like to take liquid medicine or tablets. They help to clear your respiratory system while providing soothing relief from a chesty cough.
What causes a chesty cough and catarrh?
When you have an upper respiratory tract infection, such as a cold or the flu, you may develop a chesty cough. This is because your body is creating more thick phlegm, also known as catarrh, to try to help to clear irritants from your airways.
How will Potter’s Chesty Cough & Catarrh Pastilles treat my symptoms?
Potter’s Chesty Cough & Catarrh Pastilles contain three active ingredients which work together to combat catarrh, coughs, and colds. These ingredients are:
- Pumilio pine oil
- Eucalyptus oil
These ingredients work to decongest and unblock your respiratory system, helping to clear catarrh and soothe a chesty cough. They also have antiseptic properties which helps to keep the bacteria that cause a chesty cough at bay.
