Becodefence Plus has a unique double action:
Becodefence Kids nasal Spray works directly where the allergy reaction starts, on the respiratory mucosa of the nose.
Becodefence Kids nasal Spray contains a unique thixotropic formula which when shaken becomes fluid for easy dispersion, then settles back onto the nasal lining as a gel to block allergen contact.
Becodefence Kids works by defusing pollen rapidly, supporting fast clearance of allergens and by forming a micro gel barrier to prevent against further irritation. Therefore, Becodefence Kids should be used at the first sign of symptoms, before the allergic reaction has fully developed.
It can be used by children between 6 – 12 years of age.

Daktacort HC is an antifungal cream which is used to treat inflamed sweat rash or Athlete’s Foot.
The Daktacort HC contains the following ingredients:
Sweat rash (candida intertrigo, or ‘thrush’ of the skin folds) is a sore, itchy red rash found in areas where the skin rubs together e.g. below or between the breasts, underarms, tops of legs or the groin or other skin areas.
Athlete’s Foot is a fungal skin infection causing soreness, itching and flaking between the toes or on the soles or sides of the feet. If you have a fungal infection without any symptoms of inflammation, an antifungal medication without hydrocortisone acetate may be more appropriate. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you are in doubt.
It’s extremely infectious so anyone can pick it up, especially people sharing communal changing rooms and showers.
Once the fungal spores have been transferred onto the feet, they thrive in the warm, moist areas between the toes. The skin soon becomes inflamed and itchy with flaking or cracking occurring.
The infected flakes of skin are then shed onto the floor or into the socks and shoes by walking or friction.
Someone else will be easily infected if they step on these flakes, or if they share towels or footwear with someone who has already got Athlete’s Foot.
What is more, even if you’ve already got rid of your Athlete’s Foot, it’s very easy to re-infect yourself. The spores can live on or in your shoes or socks and if you don’t change them regularly, or treat them with antifungal powders or spray powders, the Athlete’s Foot soon returns.
If you want to avoid the vicious circle of re-infection, here are a few helpful hints.
