If I become run down and poorly I can often suffer from nasty mouth ulcers which are very painful and they effect my eating too as I cannot eat properly if my mouth is sore and inflamed. I bought some very good gel for this painful condition called Anbesol Adult Strength from the Chemist and it cost me £2.99 for the tube.
The active ingredients in this lovely gel are Lidocaine Hydrochoride, chlorocresol and cetylpyridinium. This gel has got mild antiseptics in it which really do work very well on sore and painful mouth ulcers. This gel seems to be a lot stronger than the other treatments I have used for this condition and also it seems to work quicker too and brings me rapid relief.
The gel is easy to apply and I just put a little bit of it onto my finger and apply it to the ulcer. It is a pink coloured gel and it doesnít taste unpleasant when I put it inside of my mouth, it tastes quite sweet and nice.
As soon as I put this onto a sore mouth ulcer I can feel it working straight away which impressed me a lot. It numbs the pain and makes it possible for me to eat and drink again, which I couldnít do before. The pain is numbed for me for around three hours, generally, sometimes it lasts a little bit longer than that. It is very good gel and it is very effective and soothing and calming to my nasty mouth ulcers. I havenít bought any for a little while yet as I havenít had any very bad mouth ulcers which havenít been able to be treated with my usual mouth ulcer gel, but if I get another bad bout then I will buy some more of this as it is very good.
