We’re just going to come out and say it – sore throats suck! Not only do they hurt, they can make your whole mouth feel icky. Did you know that the Difflam range of gargles and solutions available for you to swish around your mouth not only offer refreshment via their minty flavour, but can actually target the inflammation that may be the cause of your sore throat? Some even contain ingredients that help treat your sore throat!
Gargling can help reduce the discomfort of a sore throat. It can also be fun! To gargle you simply place the liquid solution in your mouth, tip your head back and exhale to make the liquid bubble, then spit out the solution. If gargling seems a bit tricky you can also rinse your mouth out by swishing or swirling the liquid around inside your mouth before spitting it out – the same way you would when using mouthwash after brushing your teeth.
Either way, the goal is the same, to deliver the active ingredients of the solutions to the back of your mouth and top of your throat. This is so they can act right on the parts that are sore or inflamed and painful. The Difflam range of gargles and mouth solutions contain ingredients that work to treat or relieve the pain and discomfort of a sore throat. As an extra bonus, they are all sugar-free! Let’s explore the range.
Iodine, when combined with povidone, is thought to be able to kill the widest range of bacteria compared to other common antiseptics. This is why Difflam Sore Throat Gargle with Iodine contains povidone-iodine to help in the treatment of sore throats. It even comes as a ready-to-use formulation so you can strike at a sore throat straight away, or in a concentrated form that you dilute with water to save space in your medicine cupboard!
Did you know that the pain of a sore throat is potentially due to your body’s response to an infection? Your body’s immune system is activated in response to a viral infection.

Difflam Sore Throat Gargle and Mouth Solution provides fast relief of sore throat pain through its anti-inflammatory agent (benzydamine) which targets the site of inflammation to reduce swelling and pain.
