Colds are the disease that most often affects us. Adults get a cold once or twice a year, while children under seven get a cold seven to nine times a year (www.nhi.no).
Colds are caused by viruses that attack the nose and throat. In half of the cases the cause is a so-called rhinovirus. Among the virus types, there are hundreds of subtypes. About 6 out of 10 infected with a virus get sick. The transmission of infection is mostly through hand-to-hand contact with other persons and subsequent transmission of the virus to the nostrils or eyes, or as a infection by coughing and sneezing. The incubation period, the time from which you are infected to getting sick, is usually 2-4 days.
The course of the disease often begins with:
- sore throat
- sneezing and runny nose
- headaches and chills are also common
Young children can have a fever. Gradually, the mucous membrane of the nose swells up and the lace becomes thick and yellowish-green. The symptoms are like flu, but with the flu you get sick faster, get a fever and feel in far worse shape. (www.nhi.no).

GeloRevoice® Throat Lozenges provide protection of the mouth and throat lining (mucous membranes). They are used to relieve throat maladies such as hoarseness, throat irritation, tickly throat and dry mucous membranes, which lead to a sore throat or an unproductive, dry cough. When dissolved, GeloRevoice® Throat Lozenges form a special hydrogel complex containing hyaluronic acid. This complex adheres well to the mucous membranes, where it forms a protective film over irritated areas. Due to their special composition of minerals and a slight effervescent effect, the lozenges cause intense stimulation of saliva flow. Irritated areas can regenerate, thereby alleviating symptoms such as hoarseness, throat irritation, tickly throat and dry mucous membranes, which lead to sore throat. GeloRevoice® Throat Lozenges have a pleasantly mild cherry menthol flavour. Do not use in children below 6 years of age. Patients on a low-salt diet should remember that one GeloRevoice® Throat Lozenge contains 3.2 mmol sodium. You can find GeloRevoice in pharmacy store close to you. Navamedic distribute GeloRevoice® in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland.
