Published: Mon Aug 04 2014

Cough, cold and allergy (hay fever) remedies is the largest category within OTC, reaching retail value sales of CZK2.8 billion in 2012. Cold and flu are common illnesses which affect the majority of the population relatively regularly (mostly once or twice a year). In addition, sales are driven by current lifestyles of Czechs, when many people refuse to stay at home when they are ill with common colds and influenza and prefer self-medication to visiting a doctor (unwillingness to stay home can be partially attributed to the fact, that sick benefit is paid only from the fourth day of illness (in the case of freelancers even from the 22nd day) and is significantly lower than regular earnings, which poses a relatively appreciable reduction of monthly income).
