Tyrozets is a medicine which is used to relieve minor mouth and throat irritations. Tyrozets may also be taken to relieve irritation after mouth and throat surgery, for example having your tonsils taken out.
The lozenges contain tyrothricin which is an antibiotic than helps fight throat infection, and benzocaine, a local anaesthetic that numbs sore throat pain quickly.
The lozenges dissolve in the mouth, gradually releasing the active ingredients which reach the painful throat area at the back of the mouth.
