How to use Difflam Spray
Difflam Spray is designed to help to soothe the symptoms of a painful or sore mouth and throat. The design of the spray bottle ensures that the powerful active ingredient is delivered straight to the point of pain within your mouth or throat, to give you relief in a fast and targeted manner.
To effectively use Difflam Spray simply spray the targeted spray nozzle towards the problem area. Adults use 4-8 puffs every 2-3 hours, and children aged 6-12 use 4 puffs every 2-3 hours. For children under the age of 6, one puff is to be administered per 4kg body weight, up to a maximum of 4 puffs every 3 hours. The elderly can receive the same dosage as adults thanks to the small quantity of the drug administered.
