Iglu Mouth Ulcer Treatment Gel (8g):
A fast-acting mouth ulcer treatment providing a pain relieving, antiseptic and long-lasting protective coating. Iglu mouth ulcer gel is a remarkable, fast and effective pain-relieving and antiseptic mouth ulcer treatment. It sticks over the ulcer to protect it from further irritation and damage, and helps speed the healing process - It really works!
How to apply Iglu Gel:
For adults, children and the elderly: Apply sparingly, directly to the affected area(s) with a clean finger tip or a cotton wool bud. Re-apply as necessary – the aim being to keep the affected area(s) protected with a thin layer of gel.
As a guide, each application should normally last for an hour or more, although eating and/or drinking may necessitate more frequent re-application. In some cases, applications may remain in place for several hours.
Caution before using Iglu Gel:
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.
You should carefully read all product packaging and labels prior to use
