Vicks First Defence Nasal Spray helps to stop a cold before symptoms develop. Most cold & flu medicines help to relieve symptoms caused by the virus, but doesn’t deal with the source of the problem – the virus. Vicks First Defence helps to neutralise the virus to prevent it from developing and causing symptoms.
- When used at the first signs of a cold, Vicks First Defence Nasal Spray has been clinically proven to help stop a cold: it traps, inactivates and removes the cold virus. Despite your efforts if the virus still develops into a cold, it may be up to 2 days shorter and less severe than an average cold. Vicks First Defence nasal spray is a medical device.

Vicks First Defence Warnings
- Check the ingredients listed below and do not use this product if you are sensitive to any of them. See your doctor before using this product if you have nose, ear or throat sensitivities.
- Infection with a cold can also irritate the lining of your nose sometimes causing nose bleeding. Vicks First Defence nasal spray, like other nasal preparations, can irritate the lining of the nose which can result in nose bleeding. Such bleeding is rare, usually minor and of short duration. Should nose bleeding occur during a cold, avoid using Vicks First Defence nasal spray. If nose bleed occurs whilst using (or soon after using) the product, discontinue use. If nose bleed for any reason is heavy or persistent, consult your doctor.
