Histopharmacology of larynx

 

Although aerosols and nasal sprays may act on the larynx especially in upper respiratory tract infection and on the nasal mucosa in rhinitis. Thus balms containing menthol and methyl salicylate when inhaled, act on the respiratory mucosa to relieve the inflammatory symptoms of common cold and indeed viral infection of the tract, such as rhinorrhea.

Cough at level of and below the larynx steam inhalation with menthol may be sufficient anti-tussive but centrally acting anti-tussives such as codeine may be used. When above the larynx simple linctus may be used to treat it.
