Iglü Rapid Relief Gel is a treatment for fast,effective relief of pain from common mouthulcers, sore gums and denture rubbing.
The product, which at first looks like apale yellow paste, forms a smooth, flexibleand adhesive protective gel coating when it becomes wet on contact with salivainside the mouth.
Iglü Rapid Relief Gel works in three ways:
- By forming a gel coating to protect the sensitive and delicate area of the mouth lining as it heals
- By the actions of its two active ingredients; lidocaine hydrochlorideand aminoacridine hydrochloride, which work by stopping pain (lidocainehydrochloride is a local anaesthetic)
- Preventing infection (aminoacridinehydrochloride is an antiseptic).
Adults, the elderly and children (excluding infants and babies).
You must be at least 16 years old to purchase this product.
How to use
Please read the enclosed leaflet before use.
Only use Iglü Rapid Relief Gel for localised application inside the mouth for the conditions it is recommended for.
For adults, the elderly and children (excluding infants and babies):
Wash your hands before and after use.
If you are treating several ulcers, repeat steps 1 to 3 below for each one:
Use a clean tissue to gently remove excess moisture/saliva from the ulcer area.
Squeeze a small quantity of Iglü Rapid Relief Gel onto a clean, dry finger tip or cotton bud, and then apply it directly to the ulcer using a single, gentle wiping action (avoid dabbing).
At first, the product may seem quite pasty and sticky, but after contact with saliva, the product will form a flexible and adhesive gel coating over and around the ulcer area
Re-apply the gel, following steps 1 to 3 above, as necessary for each ulcer.
As a guide, each application should normally last for an hour or more, although, on occasions, eating or drinking may make it necessary to re-apply the gel.
In some cases, Iglü Rapid Relief Gel may remain in place for several hours, as it has strong adhesive properties.
- Do not apply excessive amounts of the gel.
- If you are treating sores caused by rubbing from false teeth/dentures etc, avoid using Iglü Rapid Relief Gel at the same time (e.g. use the gel at night or when not wearing dentures).
Hazards and Cautions
Do not use the gel if you are sensitive to any of its ingredients
Although there are no specific restrictions to using the gel during pregnancy or breast-feeding, the potential risks are unknown and caution should therefore be exercised, as with any medicine. Ask your doctor or a pharmacist for advice.
Keep the gel away from the eyes. In case of accidental contact, wash eye immediately with water: continue rinsing for 10 to 15 minutes, holding the eyelids well apart and avoid getting the rinse liquid into the other eye. Consult a doctor if irritation persists.
Overdosage is unlikely to be a problem because of the low formulated concentration and the small pack size. Inappropriate large doses may make swallowing difficult due to the loss of feeling. This may increase the risk of food or drink going down the wrong way. Generalised numbness of the mouth may also lead to biting the inside of your mouth when eating.
Excessive overdose may also lead to generalised side-effects such as nervousness, drowsiness, breathing problems or low blood pressure. In such cases, seek urgent medical attention.
If your mouth ulcer symptoms persist, seek medical advice
