I was recently given the opportunity to review a pack of Cold-EEZE Cold Lozenges. I can't say that I'm sorry I haven't had a need to use them yet :) but I do like knowing that I have a new fast-working remedy next time someone gets a cold. These are great for several different reasons. First, I like the fact that it's a lozenge, no pill or liquid medicine-uggh. I guess I'm kind of strange, but I can never stand the flavor of liquid medicines-from Tussin on up to Benadryl and such. I can swallow pills without a problem, but I would rather suffer through a cold or cough than take liquid medicine! I am excited about having these on hand though; it's great for people like me who don't like liquids, and perfect for people like my sister who can't (yes, I mean CAN NOT) swallow pills, no matter how small! I also like the small size, which means I can toss a few in my purse to have on hand whenever necessary. If we're out running errands, and one of the children starts getting a sore throat or runny nose, I can give them a Cold-EEZE right away.
The Cold-EEZE lozenge easily provides the health benefits you need, without fussing over taste or pills. And they will actually reduce the duration and symptoms of the common cold! That means you fell better faster! Cold-EEZE is the #1 pharmacist recommended zinc cold remedy, so this is definitely something you want to have on hand. Cold-EEZE is designed for children 12 and up, but if you have a youngster, don't despair-you need Kids-EEZE! This is the children's cold/cough soft, chewable version of Cold-EEZE, for younger children!
Now with summer in full swing, families and children will be frequenting parks, zoos, amusement parks, and various other public places. Places that will, most likely, be a germ hangout :) But, with a few handy items you can be prepared and ready to face whatever germs may come your way. A few necessities (in my opinion) would be, of course, a package of Cold-EEZE and Kids-EEZE for when you feel those symptoms coming on. Tissues are a must for all the runny noses, but don't just use ordinary tissues-try some Kleenex Anti-Viral Tissues. I was amazed when I first heard about these; the tissues actually have a middle layer to help prevent germ spread. Next, some Purell Hand Sanitizer. I never go anywhere without my little bottle of sanitizer, and it is so useful! I have had friends (who know I carry it) ask to use mine so many times. This is an absolute must-have for a germ-free summer. Wet Ones Antibacterial Hand Wipes are hand-y too :). An easy, mess-free way to wash your children's hands. These are just a few items that will make your summer easier; if you think of any others, please feel free to share with me!
