As winter draws near and the temperature drops, it’s that time of year again when we can be affected by coughs and colds.  We suffer from a restless night’s sleep, we feel too frail for work or school and we can’t make the most of all the fun things the season brings.  But now there is a solution to help you carry on, so that you and your family can embrace winter’s magical atmosphere.

A great partner to relieve your symptoms

As the world’s number one selling cough and cold brand1, with over 100 years of heritage providing cold symptom relief, Vicks is dedicated to helping you to feel better anytime, anywhere.  There has never been a more faithful friend to help you relieve troublesome symptoms. So now you and your family can continue with your busy lives, even if you start to feel the first tell-tale signs of a cough or a cold.

A reliable friend for every family member

Vicks understands that every member of your family is different and everyone has different needs – from the no-fuss parents who need relief on-the-go to your little one who prefers a comforting rub from mom.  That’s why each product in the Vicks range is different and relieves one or more symptoms in a variety of different ways.

Your solution

It can be rather overwhelming to walk into a pharmacy and be faced with a wall of different products, but don’t worry. The Vicks range is easy to navigate and is trusted by millions of people worldwide to help them relieve a cough or cold.  Vicks gives you the green light through cold & flu and brings you everything you need to relieve your symptoms, so you don’t have to lose a moment to a cold.  Don’t let the sniffles or a sore throat hold you and your family back from enjoying all the things that winter has to offer.

Top tips

Here are a few of our top tips for managing your cold symptoms this winter:

  • If you suffer from a productive or dry cough, try a cough syrup, like triple action Vicks Acta Plus Cough Syrup that works against 1) chesty cough, 2) dry cough and 3) soothes the throat.  Or Vicks Honey & Ginger Cough Syrup, that soothes a chesty cough.  This syrup combines medicine with natural flavours of honey and ginger.
  • To relieve your nasal congestion, use Vicks Sinex Decongestant Nasal Spray – a product that combines medicine with a soothing eucalyptus aroma.  It gets to work fast in 5 minutes2 and lasts up to 12 hours3.
  • If you feel all blocked up, don’t forget Vicks VapoRubN which eases a stuffy nose for up to 8 hours4. It also relieves a dry cough, ensuring a restful sleep for both children and parents.
For more information on the full range of Vicks cold and flu products, consult our in-store product leaflet or your pharmacist, who can give you more advice on how to relieve coughs and colds.
