Treating Cold and Flu Symptoms

The human immune system is truly remarkable, but while it carries out its work, symptoms can be felt all over the body. With science, we can help alleviate these symptoms to relieve suffering and improve lives.


While your body fights a virus, you feel the effects. Symptoms like nasal congestion, coughing, sneezing, runny nose, and sore throat are the price you pay for a winning immune system. But with the help of science, you can beat the cold and flu without getting sidelined by symptoms. 


At Bayer, we design products that alleviate the multiple symptoms caused by the cold and flu. Our trusted brands provide nasal congestion relief, multi-symptom relief, and treatment of early and full-blown cold symptoms.


Afrin™ is a topical decongestant designed to immediately relieve nasal congestion, so you can breathe freely. It is the #1 doctor and pharmacist recommended nasal spray in the U.S.

But colds often attack with multiple symptoms at once. Because Alka-Seltzer Plus™ includes products which can bring temporary relief of multiple cold and flu symptoms, it can help you fight back. 


And whether you’re dealing with the first signs of a cold, like a scratchy throat, or fighting it from bed, AspiGola™, Aspirin™ Plus C or Aspirin™ Complex can help.


At Bayer, we rely on proven science and innovative solutions to help people beat the symptoms of common illnesses like the cold and flu.
