Winter first aid kit

A winter first aid kit is most often used at the first sign of a cold.

Colds are the most common reason to visit a pharmacy during the cold season. They are associated with an acute inflammatory process of the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract: pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi. Bacteria and viruses are the cause.

Many pathogens can cause the following cold symptoms:

a feeling of nasal congestion
sore throat,
temperature increase.

Specialists often do not see the need to find out the causes of a cold (i.e. what microorganism caused the disease) and prescribe treatment. Diagnostic tests give results in 8-10 days, while recovery usually occurs much earlier. Therefore, symptomatic treatment is of particular relevance, that is, the elimination of the manifestations of the common cold in order to improve well-being. And doctors recommend starting symptomatic treatment with drugs of natural origin.

For example, in case of nasal congestion, headache, temperature, you can use decoctions of various medicinal plants: willow bark, licorice extract, eucalyptus extract and so on, but it is much easier and faster to dissolve the Istibel packet in hot water, which contains a combination of all the necessary extracts of medicinal plants!
