Throat spray

When it comes to caring for a sore throat, have you considered a throat spray? Let’s take a look at how throat sprays can help you find relief and learn a bit about different types of medicated and herbal throat sprays.


Why throat spray?

Throat sprays are a good option for targeting the back of your throat. Similar to lozenges, they can be tailored with different active ingredients to perform different functions, such as anti-inflammatory ingredients that help reduce inflammation. 

Throat spray delivery systems are designed to release a specified amount of a soft mist directly onto the painful area. This means that the inflamed tissues are getting a direct dose of the active ingredients. In addition, throat sprays are easy to administer (just point and spray!), although you should always check the label to see which age groups the product is suitable for. 

DIFFLAM Forte Anti-inflammatory Throat Spray

DIFFLAM Forte Anti-Inflammatory Throat Spray offers targeted and rapid symptom relief for hard-to-reach inflamed and painful areas in your mouth and throat. The innovative delivery system helps local delivery even to the back of the throat and other hard-to-reach areas of the throat and mouth. 

By providing an accurate and targeted dose of the active ingredients, DIFFLAM Forte Anti-inflammatory Throat Spray provides rapid relief from local inflammation and pain from 60 seconds. The sugar, gluten, and lactose-free formulation comes in a refreshing mint flavour.

The AAA difference with Difflam

A key ingredient in the DIFFLAM Forte Anti-Inflammatory Throat Spray is the unique non-steroidal anti-inflammatory benzydamine which offers Triple A expert care – acting as an anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anaesthetic all at once. The three A’s are:

Anti-inflammatory – benzydamine strongly inhibits the inflammation pathways to relieve pain and swelling

Analgesic – benzydamine accumulates in the inflamed areas of the mouth and throat

Anaesthetic (local) – benzydamine acts rapidly with the numbing effect lasting for up to 90 minutes

How to use DIFFLAM Forte Anti-inflammatory Throat Spray

DIFFLAM Forte Anti-inflammatory Throat Spray is easy to administer and easy to use, thanks to the long, multidirectional nozzle. It’s compact design also makes it easy to carry and take with you on the go
