Contrary to popular belief, a cold is not caused by cold weather. It is caused by viruses transmitted through the air and close contact with the cold sufferer.
They get inhaled through the nose and attach to the nasal lining where they multiply and spread.
The viruses invade healthy cells in the nasal passages and cause symptoms such as stuffy and runny nose, sore throat, coughing, aches and pains, and fever.
BETADINE™ COLD DEFENCE is an innovative treatment for early intervention and treatment of common cold and flu-like illness.
The recommendation is for up to 7 days.
The clinical trials have shown that BETADINE™ COLD DEFENCE has a high tolerability, no nasal irritation, smell or taste. One of the key things is that the iota carrageenan in the spray is not absorbed by the body. It really is working by physical means not by medicinal means. It is a medical device.
Carrageenan is commonly found in food products and is generally recognised as safe. You have to remember there are three different types of carrageenan: iota, kappa and lambda. The BETADINE™ COLD DEFENCE spray only contains one type of carrageenan, which is the iota carrageenan, and the iota carrageenan is generally well tolerated.
You can continue to use the saline spray to remove crusting and wash the nose. But you should always use the BETADINE™ COLD DEFENCE after the saline spray, otherwise you are going to wash out the Cold Defence and reduce its efficacy. Always seek the advice of your physician with any questions you may have.
The concentration of BETADINE™ Cold Defence for adult and paediatric is 1.2 mg/ml. Whilst the concentration is the same for both adults and kids, the spray mechanism is designed to deliver a smaller volume for kids noses.
The spray comes in two formulations: the adult spray and the kid spray. The adult spray is 1 spray into each nostril 3 times per day. And for the kid spray, which delivers a smaller dose, it is 2 to 3 sprays into each nostril 3 times per day.
The antiviral effect in vivo, in human beings, the duration has not been measured, but we do know that when BETADINE™ COLD DEFENCE is administered 3 times per day, it is effective in reducing severity of symptoms.
