    The quick dissolve, citrus-flavored tablets melt in your mouth, making them a great on-the-go cold remedy. These homeopathic tablets are non-drowsy, and non-habit forming. Safe and effective for the whole family, ages 12 and above.

    When taken at the first sign of runny nose, sore throat, congestion, sneezing, aching, or other common cold symptoms, Zicam works with your body to shorten the length of your cold, getting you right back to your active life.

  • You may notice the first signs of a cold – a sneeze, a runny nose, a tickle in your throat – as early as 10 hours after you’ve been infected with a cold virus. Typically, these symptoms will get worse over the next 24-48 hours. This is also the time when you are most contagious and most likely to pass the cold on to other people.

    No matter what Pre-Cold® signs you have, don’t just ignore them. In addition to resting and drinking plenty of fluids, taking a zinc cold remedy like Zicam® can help you shorten a cold and get better faster.
  • What causes the common cold?

    Colds are caused by viruses. Colds are the most common viral infection, and they are the most common reason that children miss school and adults miss work. Each year, people in the United States suffer 1 billion colds.*

    Why is the common cold so common?

    The main reason colds are so common is that there are more than 200 different viruses that can trigger a cold. The viruses that cause colds also spread easily. People who are suffering from colds may spread the virus into the air or onto something they touch every time they sneeze or cough. If you touch a surface that’s carrying a cold virus and then touch your mouth, nose, or eyes, there is a chance you could become infected.

    The easiest and most effective ways to prevent a cold are to wash your hands and stay away from people with colds. Clean hands can stop germs such as the cold virus from spreading from one person to another.

    What are the first signs of a cold?

    You may notice the first signs of a cold as little as ten hours after being infected with a cold virus, with full-blown symptoms 2-3 days after infection. Common symptoms that signal a cold are scratchy throat, cough, runny nose, body aches and unexplained tiredness. To shorten a cold, it’s important to take action as soon as you notice the first signs of a cold, or what we call a Pre-Cold®.

    How long is a cold contagious?

    People who have a cold are most contagious for the first 2 to 3 days of a cold. After the first week, colds are usually not contagious.*

    How does zinc shorten a cold?

    While the exact mechanism of action has not been determined, the efficacy of zinc in reducing the duration of a cold, when taken at the first sign of a cold, is supported by multiple clinical trials.
