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.
BENYLIN Chesty Coughs Original provides deep penetrating relief and a soothing effect that allows you to get on with your day
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
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.
Most coughs are caused by a cold or flu.
Other causes include:
A cough is rarely a sign of something serious like lung cancer.
