Paracetamol is an analgesic (reduce pain) and antipyretic (reduce fever). It can block the production of prostaglandins (chemical substances), thereby decreasing pain, swelling, and inflammation. Phenylephrine is a decongestant that can reduce swelling in the nasal passages making it easy to breathe.

Common cold, Allergies
CNF Activ Tablet 10's is composed of three medicines, namely Fexofenadine, Paracetamol, and Phenylephrine. Fexofenadine is an anti-allergic drug that works by blocking the action of histamine, a substance responsible for causing allergic reactions. It helps relieve allergy symptoms such as sneezing, running nose, watery eyes, itching, swelling, congestion or stiffness. Paracetamol is an analgesic (relieves pain) and antipyretic (reduces fever) that works by inhibiting the production of certain chemical messengers in the brain known as 'prostaglandin's responsible for pain and fever. Phenylephrine helps in shrinking the blood vessels in the nostrils and the nasal passage and reducing stuffy nose. Together, CNF Activ Tablet 10's can effectively treat common cold and allergy symptoms.

Common cold: The common cold is an infection caused by the virus, mainly known as ‘rhinoviruses’ affecting the nose and throat (upper respiratory tract). Children younger than 6 years are at the most significant risk of colds, but healthy adults can also be affected to have 2-3 colds annually. In most cases, cold symptoms are recovered within a week or ten days. However, symptoms might last longer in people who smoke or are exposed to allergens like pollutants, dust, etc. The common cold symptoms include sneezing, sore throat, cough, congestion, mild body pains, low fever, mild headache, feeling unwell, stuffy, or runny nose. In some cases, the discharge from the nose may become thicker and yellow or green, which is not an indication of bacterial infection.
Allergies: It occurs when foreign elements that cause allergy (allergens) attack and invade our body, causing the release of histamines. This chemical messenger 'histamines' causes swelling, inflammation, redness, itchiness, itchy/watery nose, throat, and watery eyes. Allergies generally occur due to chemicals, air pollution, pet danders, dust, pollen hairs, seasonal allergies like hay fever, etc.
