What does triple action relief mean?
Difflam offers triple action relief for those suffering from a sore throat.

Secondly, it serves as an effective analgesic, alleviating sore throat pain swiftly. Lastly, it acts as an anaesthetic, soothing your throat and enabling you to continue with your daily activities comfortably.
What makes benzydamine an effective treatment for mouth pain?
Benzydamine, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), functions by decreasing the hormones responsible for inflammation and pain in the body.
