Vicks First Defence is a treatment for the common cold which helps to catch the virus early, clinically proven to stop a cold in it’s tracks. It can reduce the severity of your cold symptoms, meaning your cold won’t last as long or be as difficult to deal with.
When you come into contact with the common cold virus, it sticks to the back of your nose, where it begins to multiply. This is when your body starts to fight off the virus, leaving you with coughs, sneezes, and a tickle in the back of your throat.
Vicks First Defence uses a unique micro-gel formula to trap the cold viruses that start to develop in the back of your nose. It reduces the pH levels in the back of your nose to stop the virus multiplying and spreading. Finally, it flushes your nose to help to remove the virus either by blowing your nose or sending it toward the stomach.
Start using Vicks First Defence as soon as you feel the first symptoms of a cold, such as sneezing or a tickle in your throat. Insert nozzle into your nostril, aiming in direction of your ear and without tilting your head. Apply 2 – 3 sprays in each nostril up to four times a day, allowing 4 hours to pass between each application. Do not use more than 4 applications every day.
