What is Vicks First Defence?

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.


How do you catch a cold?

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.


How does Vicks First Defence treat and prevent a cold?

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.


When should I use this product?

For best results, you should use Vicks First Defence as soon as you can after noticing that you’re developing a cold. Some of the early symptoms you might notice when you’re getting a cold include a tickle in the back of your throat and sneezing.


Can I use this product if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before taking any medication, including Vicks First Defence. This is because some medicines aren’t safe to use during pregnancy and aren’t right for your baby.


Can I use this spray if I’m taking other medication?

You should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product if you are taking any other medication, including medication you bought without a prescription. Some medications can interact when used together, making them less effective or causing unwanted side effects. Your doctor or pharmacist can give you all of the information you need about whether your medications will be safe to use at the same time.


How to use Vicks First Defence

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.


When should Vicks First Defence not be used?

Vicks First Defence is not suitable for use by those under the age of 12. For nasal use only. Do not use this nasal spray for more than one person to prevent the spread of infection. If you have any nose, ear, or throat sensitivities, speak to your doctor before using this nasal spray. Do not use Vicks First Defence if you are allergic to any of the listed ingredients.


Does this product have any side effects?

Like all medication, Vicks First Defence can have side effects, although not everyone will experience them. When you have a cold, the virus can irritate the lining in your nose and throat. When you use this spray, it can make that irritation worse, causing nose bleeding, which is usually minor and finished quickly. If you experience nose bleeds or any other side effects while using this product, stop use and speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist right away. For more information about reporting side effects of medication, please see the MHRA’s Yellow Card Scheme.
