Zicam Cold Remedy Rapid Melts Cherry Facts
Zicam Cold Remedy Rapid Melts Cherry treats the cold, not just the symptoms. Unlike other over-the-counter cold medicines designed to relieve or mask symptoms, Zicam Cold Remedy is different. When taken at the first sign, within the first 24 to 48 hours, Zicam Cold Remedy gets rid of your cold faster.
Common cold facts indicate that most people ignore the first few days when they're "just getting a cold." They start "medicating" only when they begin to feel miserable, a few days into the cold cycle. It is during those crucial first few days, before full-blown symptoms appear, that the cold virus is replicating. That's the ideal time to start using Zicam Cold Remedy so you can get rid of your cold faster.
