Pain


Pain is an unpleasant sensation and emotional experience that links to tissue damage1. It allows the body to react and prevent further tissue damage. People feel pain when a signal travels through nerve fibres to the brain for interpretation.1

The following factors need to be considered around pain:
  • Pain is always a subjective experience that is influenced to varying degrees by the person’s biological, psychological, and social factors. 2
  • As people learn and go through life, they learn the concept of pain and how it is applied in their lives. 2
  • If a person says that they have pain, it should be accepted and acknowledged. 2
  • Although people can adapt to pain, pain may have negative effects on the social and psychological well-being of the person. 2
  • Verbal description is only one of a few ways pain is expressed. The inability to communicate does not mean a human or animal does not experience pain. 2
The products in the Pharmaforce pain portfolio is indicated for the topical relief of pain (Go-Pain Relief Patches & Go-Pain Arnica Gel) as well as systemic relief of pain and fever (Go-Pain P Syrup).

The products in the PharmaForce Pain portfolio are:

Cough and Sore Throat


The CDC estimates that as many as 56,000 people die from the flu or flu-like illness each year. 3

Therefor as winter nears, we have to start bracing ourselves against the cold and flu sniffles, sneezes and coughs. Though you can catch a cold at any time of year, colds are more common during the winter months. This is because most cold-causing viruses thrive in low humidity. 3

Colds spread when someone who’s sick sneezes or coughs, sending virus-filled droplets flying through the air. 3

You can get sick if you touch a surface (such as a countertop or doorknob) that has recently been handled by an infected person and then touch your nose, mouth, or eyes. You’re most contagious in the first two to four days after you’re exposed to the cold virus. 3

Is it a cold or is it flu?
Viruses cause colds and the flu. Both are respiratory infections. The simplest way to tell the difference is by looking at your symptoms. 3

Cold Symptoms
  • runny or stuffy nose 3
  • sore throat 3
  • sneezing 3
  • cough 3
  • headache or body aches 3
  • mild tiredness 3
Flu Symptoms
  • dry, hacking cough 3
  • moderate to high fever, although not everyone with the flu will run a fever 3
  • sore throat 3
  • shaking chills 3
  • severe muscle or body aches 3
  • headache 3
  • stuffy and runny nose 3
  • severe fatigue that may last up to two weeks 3
  • nausea and vomiting, as well as diarrhoea (most common in children) 3

Colds come on gradually over a few days and are often milder than the flu. They usually get better in 7 to 10 days, although symptoms can last for up to 2 weeks. 3

Flu symptoms come on quickly and can be severe. They usually last 1 to 2 weeks. 3

Use your symptoms as a guide to figure out which condition you have. If you think you might have the flu, see your doctor to get treatment as soon as possible. 3

Digestive Health


How does the digestive system work?
Each part of your digestive system helps to move food and liquid through your GI tract, break food and liquid into smaller parts, or both. Once foods are broken into small enough parts, your body can absorb and move the nutrients to where they are needed. Your large intestine absorbs water, and the waste products of digestion become stool. Nerves and hormones help control the digestive process. 4

Interesting Digestive facts:
  • It's common for pregnant women to suffer from heartburn. 5
  • Frequent heartburn can be a classic symptom of a condition called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). 5
  • People with diarrhoea caused by certain infections can lose up to 20 litres of fluids per day. 6
  • A bout of diarrhoea typically lasts for 1 to 2 days. But some people can have diarrhoea that lasts much longer, due to underlying health conditions. 6
  • You must never ignore nature’s call, since holding it in for release later can aggravate constipation. 7
  • Starting your day with two glasses of water with little lemon in it is a good way to fight constipation. 7
  • 75 Percent of Americans Are Chronically Dehydrated. 8
  • Dehydration Causes Foggy Memory, Irritability, and More. 8

Diaper rash in babies

Diaper rash is a common form of inflamed skin (dermatitis) that appears as a patchwork of bright red skin on your baby's bottom. 14 It usually affects babies, though anyone who wears a diaper regularly can develop the condition.14 Diaper rash is caused by four factors: 15
  • Presence of oral thrush
  • Number of previous episodes
  • Frequency of diaper changes
  • Diarrhoea


Adult diaper rash

Adult diaper rash often occurs as a result of wearing adult diapers, incontinence briefs, or pads. Diaper rash begins as small, pink patches of irritated skin and progresses to larger patches of red, raised, painful bumps with a surrounding rash. 16

People may need to use adult diapers or pads in a variety of situations, including when they are:
  • having trouble using or accessing the bathroom 16
  • struggling with bowel or bladder control 16
  • living with conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease that affect their ability to remember to go to the bathroom 16
