Benylin Chesty Coughs Original
What it does
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.
