What are Strepsils Orange with Vitamin C?

Strepsils Orange are soothing lozenges that help to provide relief from discomfort caused by painful sore throats. Each lozenge has a boost of 100mg of Vitamin C.  

What are the symptoms of a throat infection?

Symptoms of a sore throat include:

  • A painful throat, especially when swallowing.
  • A dry, scratchy throat.
  • Redness in the back of the mouth.
  • Bad breath.
  • A mild cough.
  • Swollen neck glands.

What are the causes of a sore throat?

Viral infections

Viruses that can cause a sore throat include:

  • Common cold.
  • Flu.
  • Mono.
  • Measles.
  • Chickenpox.

Bacterial infections

The most common bacterial infection that causes sore throats is Streptococcus Pyogenes, which causes strep throat.

Other causes

Other causes of a sore throat include:

  • Allergies.
  • Dry air.
  • Irritants.
  • Muscle strain.

How can Strepsils Orange help soothe sore throats?

Strepsils Orange contain two anti-septic ingredients:

  • 2,4-dichlorobenzyl alcohol
  • Amylmetacresol

These work together to relieve pain in the mouth and throat infections by lubricating the painful area. They also have mild antiseptic properties which kill bacteria associated with mouth and throat infections. The lozenges also include Vitamin C, which is beneficial during infection as Vitamin C levels can fall.
