Difflam Sore Throat Rinse 200ml
Difflam Sore Throat Rinse is a liquid treatment for sore throats that can be used by swishing it around in your mouth or gargling with it like a mouthwash. It helps to ease the pain and inflammation caused by a sore throat. Viruses or bacteria usually cause sore throats. What is the active ingredient and how does it work?
The active ingredient in Difflam Mouthwash is benzydamine hydrochloride, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works by changing how the body reacts to pain, reducing pain and inflammation at the same time.
