Why is it different from other cold products? What does it do?

Unlike medicines that help relieve bothersome cold symptoms, First defence nasal spray works at the first signs of a cold by targeting the viruses to help stop the cold in its tracks before they symptoms get worse.

How does it work?

When used at the first signs of a cold, First Defence nasal spray acts at the back of the nose directly where the cold virus takes hold and starts to develop. It traps, inactivates and helps your body naturally remove the cold virus, before it develops into a full blown cold.

How to Use

Always read leaflet before use

How and when to use it?

Apply 2-3 sprays per nostril immediately within the 14-36 hours after feeling the 1st signs of a cold such as a tickle at the back of your throat, or sneezing. Use up to 4 times a day. Avoid inhaling deeply.

For best results continue to use for 2 days after symptoms subside.

Not suitable for children under 12

It does actually work, and has every time! I feel this needs a much better review than it currently has as this is the best product for keeping a cold away. But you seriously have to get it early, literally the first weird feeling you get at the back of your throat otherwise you're too late. If your nose is already bunged up like the other reviewer then no, it probably won't work for you. On only one occasion has this not worked for me...because mine was out of date :') Any other time I absolutely swear by it. 11 March 2013
Great stuff This spray works everytime for me if used within the first 2days of symptoms (tickly throat, itchy nose). The only time it didn't work for me was when I was away for 3 days and didn't have any with me (nor could I get any), so used it as soon as I got home but the cold took hold, it did however clear up 2days afterwards which is good for me as my colds last 1-2 weeks. It can give a burning sensation at first but the leaflet says this is due to the spray working. Others around me at the time of me using it (and a few minutes afterwards) say they can smell it...........a small price to pay for stopping a cold from developing! I woke up this morning with a tickly throat and itchy nose and now it's gone (9pm). 07 December 2013
Definitely works Bought this after being told by a colleague more than once how it is the best things for colds if you use it at the right time. The best thing to do is use it as soon as you feel even a slight sore throat or sniffle. Any later than that cold wise and it wont work. Me and two of my family members all felt a cold starting to develop, bought some of this, used a couple of sprays and we have all survived having the terrible pesky cold that lingers. Definitely recommend, a product worth always having in your cupboard. 05 December 2014
