Tyrozets - why has no one told me about these before!!
Member Name: lubyloo
Advantages: does what it says!
Apparently these have been around years and years!! I've been suffering with sore throats for years and years why has no one ever told me till now!!
A friend recently told me about these when I had my most recent sore throat, it seems that I'm prone to sore throats as soon as a cold is around it's the first thing I get. I HATE having a sore throat it's so annoying, can't enjoy food or taste it and it hurts to swallow grr!
What are they?
Tyrozets are a small lozenge about the size of a 5pence piece. The ingredients are 5mg Benzocaine which is the numbing stuff and 1mg of Tyrothricin which is an antibiotic.
What do they do?
They work by numbing the throat and the antibiotic helps avoid infections caused by sore throats. I had no idea that antibiotics could be used in this way I guess it's small amouts which is why they can be bought over the counter.
I think they taste great, they are a little bit like refreshers in texture but taste more like aniseed.
It costs approx £3 (June 2012) for 24 lozenges, I guess that sounds a lot but it's worth it!
They come in a plastic tube which is really handy to keep in your bag or pocket, so I always have some on me just in case a sore throat comes on, I've found the earlier you catch it the better.
I have found these to be great, I really don't like the strong sweets that really really numb your throat and seem somehow to numb your lips and gums too! for some reason this doesn't do that too much, it just coats the throat enough. I do believe that the antibiotic in it must work well as I've not had so many throat infections since using them and the sore throats don't get as bad. I find at night sucking one just before going off to sleep helps as well as it stops the throat from getting worse at night and enables me to go off to sleep.
I think the price is well worth it for the relief of sore throats.
Really impressed and a great help, I only wish I'd known about these years ago when I had many throat infections from wisdom teeth (now long gone!)
Summary: a great product
