When our 4 1/2 month old son started showing signs of teething we went to town and purchased ‘Calgel’ because we had already used Calpol (a mild pain killer for babies and infants) and knew it worked effectively. However this product does not contain paracetamol, which means that you can use Calpol along side this medicationThe next time we noticed he was suffering we got out the Calgel, read how much we should apply to his gum (about the tip of your small finger full) and rubbed it onto the offending area. Within a couple of minutes he was quietening down and soon back to his happy little self.
What is Calgel?Calgel teething gel is a yellowish-brown coloured gel with the active ingredient ‘Lignocaine Hydrochloride’ , BP 0.33%w/w and Cetylpyridinium chloride BP 0.10%w/w
Sounds like a lot of chemicals to be putting in a baby’s mouth, but the list goes on of other ingredients, best to check these though in case your baby has an allergy to any of them.What is Calgel teething gel used for?
Calgel is solely used for teething pain in infants, the lignocaine is a local anaesthetic which numbs the area.
Calgel is suitable for most infants but if your child has any bad side effects to chamomile then Calgel must not be used, or if your child is sensitive to any of the other ingredients in Calgel.
You can use Calgel on your infant from the age of 3 months.
You only need a small amount on clean cotton bud or finger and gently rub into the painful area.
If necessary this can be repeated up to 6 times a day at 20-minute intervals.
Possible side effects.According to the information supplied with Calgel side effects are very uncommon, however allergic reactions such as swelling, a rash or a slight difficulty in breathing may occur.
How to store your medicine.There is no special conditions in which you should store your Calgel but do keep it in a cool place and with all medicines KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
For about £1.50 for a 10g tube I think its well worth the money as it did an excellent job and I would recommend it to any parent who has an infant who is having teething troubles.
