Most cold & flu medicines help to relieve the cold symptoms, but they don't act on the source of the problem: the virus!

VICKS First Defence neutralizes the viruses which cause cold and flu symptoms. If there is no virus, there are no symptoms!
Vicks First Defence Nasal Spray is enhanced with plant extracts to help relieve the common symptoms of a cold such as tickly, runny, sneezing nose, and tickly throat. It is designed to be applied as soon as you feel the first warning signs of a cold and works by attacking the virus where it first takes hold.
