How Silkof Syrup works

Silkof Syrup is a combination of four medicines: Phenylephrine, Menthol, Diphenhydramine and Chlorpheniramine. Phenylephrine is a decongestant which narrows the small blood vessels providing relief from congestion or stuffiness in the nose. Menthol produces a sensation of coolness and relieves minor throat irritation. Diphenhydramine and Chlorpheniramine are antiallergics which relieve allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing.
