WHY DO WE GET COLD & FLU SYMPTOMS?
The viruses responsible for Cold & Flu take hold at the back of the nose, where they find the ideal conditions to replicate. After a few hours, they start to cause the early signs of a cold such as tickly nose, itchy throat, sneezing, headache2.
After around 36 hours, the virus has multiplied millions of times and therefore causes more severe symptoms such as runny nose, blocked nose, sore throat, fever, cough. The cold symptoms usually last for about a week,
but sometimes it is even longer2!
NEUTRALIZE THE SOURCE OF THE COLD: THE VIRUS!
VICKS First Defence acts directly in the nose, where the viruses develop (that's why it is a nasal spray). Its microgel traps and neutralizes the cold viruses, helping to prevent them from developing and spreading1.
It then naturally helps your body to remove the neutralized viruses by blowing your nose or swallowing1.
When used in the first 36 hours of a cold, Vicks First Defence has been shown to help stop a cold in its tracks, and not develop into a full-blown cold1.
