and Colds
Established 1879
The time for Vapo-Cresolene is at the first indication
of a cold or sore throat, which are so often the
warnings of dangerous complications.

It is simple to use, as you just light the little lamp that vaporizes the Cresolene and place it near the bed at night.

The soothing antiseptic vapor is breathed all night; making breathing easy, relieving the cough and easing the sore throat and congested chest.

Cresolene is recommended for Whooping Cough, Spasmodic Croup. Influenza, Bronchitis, Coughs and Nasal Catarrh. Its germicidal qualities make it a reliable protection against these epidemics. It gives great relief in Asthma.

Cresolene has been recommended and used for the past forty years. The benefit derived from it is un questionable
