chlorhexidine and benzocaine
Toncils lozenges are used to disinfect the mouth and throat in adults and children aged 7 years and over. The active substance chlorhexidine is a broad-spectrum disinfectant, which is effective against most of the microbial species that occur in the mouth. It is effective against several bacteria, yeasts, dermatophytes and lipophilic viruses. Chlorhexidine is ineffective against bacterial spores. The other active substance benzocaine is a local anaesthetic, which onset of action is fast and which effect lasts for 5-15 minutes. Toncils lozenges are ineffective in tonsillitis caused by streptococci.
