I have been a little run down of recent weeks and I found myself developing mouth ulcers and spots etc, these mouth ulcers were quite painful and since I only usually suffer from them when I am feeling not very well or not taking care of myself so much. I found them to be very irritating and painful. I actually already had some of this product in my medicine cabinet unopened because I had used it before and bought another one to keep stored as I do try and buy different products to see if they may be more suitable as that is the way we all find what works for us or not. This one was at the time I first bought it was recommend to me by the Pharmacist, he recommend I should use and he offered me this one to try and have instant pain relief as I was on a shopping trip for the day and I was feeling a little uncomfortable with the pain.
This is a liquid and it comes in a transparent glass bottle with a screw off top. It is only a very small bottle of around 2 inches tall and the amount is 15ml and it usually is priced at around 4 to 5 pounds.. The liquid is a clear, dark yellow colour, the smell is apparent as soon as the top is removed from the bottle, it smells quite clinical but not too overpowering or unpleasant, I would say it is quite a mild smell for this kind of product in my opinion.
It is very easy to use and all that is needed is to use undiluted and use a very clean fingertip and rub the effected area very gently so that it does not hurt too much, only a very little is needed with this one. As soon as I bought it I went to a toilet and washed my hands and then gently rubbed it into my ulcers and I had instant relief immediately. I was absolutely surprised how quickly this product worked for an instant relief as I thought what the Pharmacist had told me probably would be that true as some of them tend to help you buy a product just to add to their sales at times but this product really does work.
It does taste a little nasty but not so much so I could not stand the taste in my mouth, I would not have been worried what it did taste like, as long as I had pain relief. The taste really does not last that long in the mouth and in a few minutes or so the taste is removed. I found I could drink after using it and I had a cup of tea in a café and I could quite easily drink the hot drink with no problems whatsoever, simply brilliant as I could not even drink before hand without my mouth feeling so painful.
It does tell me on the back of the bottle that 2 applications can be used immediately but I found the one application did the trick for my ulcers and they were quite big ones and it worked perfectly using just the one.
It does also tell me that it can be used up to 8 times a day, I think this is a good amount of times, I found I only had to re apply after about 4 hours and that was enough time to help heal my ulcers as well as giving me the relief from the terrible pain they caused.
It is also designed for gum irritations and very sore tongues, also it tells me it can also be used for children, although I have not used it on a child, it does tell me on the bottle it can be used for babies who are teething and only one application used in the same way as for an adult would be enough to give pain relief for a baby or young child. Also for children and babies it is not to be used for up to half an hour after the first application. It can also be used for elderly people too who may suffer from gum problems if they were false teeth etc or just if they have any gum problems etc.
This liquid really did work for me and I could not fault it at all, it is a very good quality product and excellent value and worth every penny in my opinion. I highly do recommend it for anyone who has continuous mouth irritations or ulcers because it can give you an instant relief and help you have a much nicer, more pleasant day without being miserable because when the mouth is painful I feel miserable quite a lot of the time.
It can be stored in a medicine cupboard and stored at a temperature no more than 25 degrees. It is a nice size to place into a bag for taking out for the day or if you are at work and need to use it etc. Quite a handy little bottle size in my opinion.
I will be buying this again in the future because I love it and it helped me so much, it is affordable for a product that can be bought and stored, unopened for quite some time as the sell by date is at least a couple of years unopened. Simply excellent in my opinion to buy and keep handy in the medicine cupboard because we never know when an ulcer can appear and especially those nasty ones as I have had the past few weeks. Well worth the money in my opinion.
