What are Strepsils Extra lozenges?

Strepsils Extra are a treatment for sore throats which you can take every couple of hours for fast relief. Strepsils Extra tackle the cause of a sore throat, working to fight infections while easing pain and discomfort caused by a sore throat.


What causes a sore throat?

Two of the most common causes of a sore throat are bacterial infections and viral infections, including the common cold or the flu. You could also develop a sore throat if you are suffering from strep throat or tonsillitis, which can both make it uncomfortable when you swallow due to inflammation.
