PREPARE TO AVOID CATCHING THE COMMON COLD
THIS SUMMER

Bromfed DM Cough Syrup is indicated for relief of cough and upper respiratory
symptoms, including nasal congestion, associated with allergy or the common cold.

Although the winter cough, cold, and flu season is behind us, we must be ready for the summer common cold, which can often be worse than those occurring in the winter.

Summer colds are often caused by a family of viruses called enteroviruses. The enteroviruses have a preference for warmer weather and can cause millions of illnesses each year, usually between June and October. Enteroviruses are the second most common type of virus that affects children after rhinovirus. Enteroviruses predominate in childhood because adults may have antibodies from previous infections that protect them.

Runny nose, nasal congestion, and postnasal drainage are complaints
that are associated with both summer and winter colds. Enteroviruses, however, may also cause a variety of other symptoms including fever, sore throat, hacking cough, diarrhea, and skin rash. A summer cold may be more intense than a winter cold, and the symptoms may last up to 10 days.

If the dreaded summer cold does come your way, remember, antibiotics will not help with any type of viral infections. Ask your healthcare provider about Bromfed DM, the #1 cough and cold non-narcotic prescription brand to help relieve your cough and upper respiratory symptoms, including nasal congestion. Also, check with your healthcare provider if you have concerns like fever or rash that are greater than common symptoms of a cold.
