Benylin Chesty Cough Original Syrup, 150ml

Benylin Chesty Cough Original Syrup is used to help relieve chesty coughs. This cough syrup contains two active ingredients and Levomenthol. Guaifenesin helps loosen mucus from the lungs to make it easier to cough it up, whilst Levomenthol helps ease build-up congestion. Suitable for adults and children aged 12 and over.

What does it do?

BENYLIN Chesty Coughs Original provides deep penetrating relief and a soothing effect that allows you to get on with your day

How it works:

Active ingredient diphenhydramine hydrochloride is an antihistamine and works by relieving a cough. Diphenhydramine also helps dry nasal secretions by preventing the natural body chemical histamine from binding to its receptors and producing a runny nose. Levomenthol works to relieve stuffiness in the nose to help make breathing easier

What is a chesty cough?

Chesty coughs are caused by a build-up of phlegm in the lungs and on the chest. The cough mechanism kicks in to try and get rid of this excess mucus.

What causes coughs

Most coughs are caused by a cold or flu.

Other causes include:

  • smoking
  • heartburn (acid reflux)
  • allergies – for example, hay fever
  • infections like bronchitis
  • mucus dripping down the throat from the back of the nose

A cough is rarely a sign of something serious like lung cancer.
