A cough is often the result of two situations: a throat irritation or an accumulation of secretions in the respiratory system (nose, bronchus or lungs). Typically, a cough is a reflex to protect and clear the airways. Causes can vary; it can be a common cold symptom, or a sign of an infection caused by either a bacteria or virus. Your pharmacist can offer you valuable tips on how to relieve your cough. However, if your condition worsens, our health care team will strongly recommend that you see your doctor.


Very frequently, colds are a viral infection that occur in the throat and nasal cavities. Colds usually can be recognized by their symptoms of sneezing, sore throat and a stuffy, runny nose. There are several treatments available, and sometimes it can be hard to decide which is best. Your pharmacist can help you find the best solution to help you fight your cold symptoms. 


Very contagious, flu is an infection caused by the influenza virus. Fever, muscle aches and fatigue are some of the symptoms you may experience. There is a vaccine for flu; talk to your pharmacist to know when it is available and if it is suitable for you. Lead out vers vaccination.
