When the first symptoms of an infection appear in the oral cavity and throat, most people turn to the simplest natural remedy – warm water with salt. However, they do not treat as much as mask the irritation and soreness since they are not targeting the cause behind these unpleasant symptoms.
Treat, not mask
The main difference between Hexetidine (BACTIDOL®) and other treatment options is that it fights the primary cause: the diseases (infectious and inflammatory), and does not merely disguise their appearance, helping to soothe the pain.
Hexetidine (BACTIDOL®) works in as fast as 30 seconds and protects for 12 hours against sore throat causing germs. This prevents sore throat worsening into a cough, cold or flu.*
