Medicine in South Korea

Being sick is never fun.  I don’t know if its the kids that constantly cough or sneeze everywhere, or the yellow dust that blows in from China, but I tend to keep getting colds.  Typically, the colds aren’t too bad, but they are a bummer when having to work all week.

Both times I have had a cold, I have just gone to the pharmacy for medication after running out of the Nyquil I brought with me from home.  This time I took the advice of another teacher and got a product called Green Nose to relieve my congestion.

The medicines seem to be quite different here.  They usually come in doses of 2-3 days.  I am not sure if this is because they have more active ingredient or if they just want you to keep coming back.  I find the Green Nose name quite humorous and quite disgusting at the same time.  But the best part of the medicine is the box.

I mean how can you go wrong with anything when on the box is a smiling guy giving a thumbs up?

    I am just thankful it works. It doesn’t hurt that the name and the guy on it are awesome too.
