Vicks First Defence is a unique micro gel nasal spray that contains no drug ingredients. It simply works in a physical way using three key actions, which supplement the body’s natural ability to trap disarm and remove cold viruses before they take hold.
The spray action ensures the Micro Gel is transferred to the back of the nasal passage where the cold virus first takes hold. Once there, the gel’s unique triple action formula creates a hostile environment, traps the virus and then helps the body to flush it out :
The micro gel supplements the body's own defence mechanism - mucus - to coat the virus so it cannot dock to the body’s cells
The gel's low pH inactivates the virus (viruses thrive in higher pH environments)
Ingredients in the gel trigger the body to create mucus – helping to flush out the trapped, disarmed viruses

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.
Adults and children (12 years & older): Apply 2-3 sprays per nostril up to 4 times a day. Allow 4 hours between applications, no more than 4 applications in 24 hours.
For best results continue to use for 2 days after symptoms subside.
Use only as directed: Without tilting your head, insert the nozzle into your nostril, aiming the nozzle outwards in the direction of your ear. Then fully depress the pump 2 or 3 times with firm even strokes and avoid inhaling deeply. Repeat for the other nostril.
