(IGLÜ GEL IS MADE FOR THE PRODUCT LICENCE HOLDER, DIOMED DEVELOPMENTS LTD, HITCHIN, HERTS, SG4 7QR, UK AT AEROPAK, GREAT YARMOUTH, NORFOLK, NR31 0NU, UK.)
The gel is specially formulated to form a pain-relieving, antiseptic and long-lasting protective coating for the fast, effective treatment of common mouth ulcers, soreness of the gums and denture rubbing.
Before you use Iglü GelDo not use the gel if you are sensitive to any of its ingredients (as listed on page 1).
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 smal pack size. Inappropriate large doses may make swal owing 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.
How to apply Iglü GelFor use in the mouth. For adults, the elderly and children (excluding infants and babies):
• Apply sparingly, directly to the affected area(s) with a clean fingertip or 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 normal y 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.
During your treatmentLike all medicines, the gel may have side effects. Hypersensitivity reactions to lidocaine hydrochloride and aminoacridine hydrochloride occur rarely. If you become wheezy or short of breath after using the gel, discontinue use
and contact your doctor or a pharmacist immediately. If you are concerned about any other side effects, seek medical advice.
How to store Iglü GelThis product should not be used after the expiry date stated on the pack. Always replace the cap tightly after use. Moisture at the nozzle of the tube may cause the gel to thicken and block the opening. Careful y clear with a pin if this occurs. Store the gel where children cannot see or reach it. Do not store above 25˚C.
