Spray Strepsils Is a combination drug that has antimicrobial, analgesic and antifungal effects. It first went on sale in 1958. Today the Strepsils spray is one of the most popular and effective drugs for the treatment of sore throat.
Composition of spray Strepsils
In the spray Strepsils two active antiseptic components. Their main difference is the mechanism of action. This is what helps the drug to perform bactericidal action against a large spectrum of microorganisms. The first component is 2,4-dichlorobenzyl alcohol. It has a bacteriostatic and bactericidal effect for a short time, keeping a large amount of water near itself, which leads to dehydration of microorganisms and their rapid death. The second component is amylmetacreazole. It penetrates into cells of microorganisms and breaks their protein structure.
In addition to such a strong antibacterial complex, the drug has lidocaine. It has an anesthetic effect, blocking sensitive nerve endings. Spray Strepsils with lidocaine literally instantly eliminates pain in the larynx.
