We're glad you asked. You know that first sniffle, sneeze or cough? That throat tickle, ache or unexplained tiredness? The "uh-oh" stage before you get a full-blown monster of a cold? That's a Pre-Cold®.
We all have our own Pre-Cold® signs. They're the ones we usually ignore and hope will just go away. That's when you'll find the Cold Monster® starting to take hold. For some people the symptoms are an itchy, scratchy throat or a runny nose. For others it's uncommon body aches or watery eyes. Whatever your first signs, the next time you have them, take Zicam® within the first 24 hours. It's a completely different® kind of medicine that's clinically proven* to shorten a cold – it doesn’t just treat symptoms.
*Clinical results have been shown for Zicam® Cold Remedy RapidMelts®, Ultra RapidMelts®, Medicated Fruit Drops, Oral Mist™, Nasal Spray, and Nasal Swabs.
