Amylmetacresol is the antiseptic used to treat infections of the throat. Amylmetacresol is one of the active ingredients in throat lozenges. The mixture with Amylmetacresol significantly reduces the infectivity of certain infectious viruses in the throat and presumably in cough droplets, thus reducing opportunities for person-to-person transmission. Amylmetacresol and 2,4-Dichlorobenzylalcohol are contraindicated in hypersensitivity. Drug interactions though are not yet known. Occasionally, hypersensitivity reactions may occur though digestive problems such as nausea or dyspepsia are extremely rare.
