Strepsils Orange with Vitamin C Lozenges contains two antiseptic ingredients for use in throat medications. These are used for the symptomatic relief of mouth and throat infections. These ingredients are both mild antiseptics which kill the bacteria associated with mouth and throat infections.
The action of sucking the lozenge allows the active ingredients to work in the area of the discomfort and also helps lubricate and soothe the painful area. This helps relieve the soreness and discomfort of mouth and throat infections. Ascorbic acid provides a source of Vitamin C which may be beneficial during infection when Vitamin C levels are believed to fall.
