And onwards we go in our indefatigable crusade against being ill from November – April!!
I have long been a fan of First Defence, which is an anti-viral gel you squirt up your nose and while it works, if used right, it is utterly vile and trickles down the back of your throat and I swear makes you feel worse.
So I feel pretty perky at the idea of this stuff, which you spray in your throat (so much less invasive and intimate than up the nose) and reviews say that it tastes of “slightly sweet water” which is better than the toilet-cleaner reek of First Defence.
Anyway I haven’t tried it yet but I’m off to buy some later. If you have any experiences with this feel free to post your thoughts in the handy comments section below.
On a previous post, I think the one which mentioned first defence, one of the commenters mentioned some probiotic supplements. I neeeeed more information! What type? Where from? We’re getting desperate here!
I used probiotics for years, stopped and haven’t really noticed any difference, tbh! Ever since the bird/pig flu scares I’ve made a point of washing my hands and face – not touching my face, eyes or mouth in supermarkets, or whilst shopping. Not in a paranoid OCD way, but just being a bit careful.. I’ll have a look at this ColdZyme next time I’m out as I’m asthmatic and colds always end in a long term chest infection. Thank you!
