What is Aloclair Plus Gel and how does it work?
Aloclair Plus Gel is a form of treatment that is designed to treat ulcers and other types of tissue damage in the mouth. It works by forming a protective film over the mouth ulcer or lesion, protecting any exposed nerve endings that may be causing you pain or irritation. This not only helps to ease your pain, but supports the natural healing of the damaged area too.
Who is Aloclair Plus Gel suitable for?
It is suitable for anyone who is suffering from mouth ulcers or any other minor injury in the mouth. It can be used to ease chafing or pain caused by braces or ill-fitting dentures, or lesions that were created during surgery in your mouth.
Is this gel suitable for someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding?
There is no reason why someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding could not use Aloclair Plus, though it is recommended to consult your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using any new medication. This will help you to be sure that the product is safe for you and your baby.
Is it ok to use Aloclair Plus while using other medication?
If you are taking any other medication, speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product, especially if the medication is used in your mouth. Medicines can interact when used together, making them less effective, so always speak to your doctor or pharmacist to be sure this won’t happen.
Can I use Aloclair Plus Gel is I am wearing braces?
Yes, this gel will also help with tissue damage in the mouth caused by wearing braces. This can happen when your braces rub against the side of your mouth, causing irritation or chafing.
How much gel should I use?
Apply 1 or 2 drops of gel to cover the whole mouth ulcer or lesion. Do not touch the affected area with the applicator. Do not touch with the tongue for 2 minutes after use to allow the protective film to form. Avoid eating or drinking for at least 1 hour after use. Use 3 – 4 times a day, as needed.
When should Aloclair Plus not be used?
Do not use this product if you are allergic to any of the listed ingredients. Each tube of gel should only be used by one patient to avoid cross-contamination. Speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist if you suffer from frequent mouth ulcers. Do not use this product if the packaging appears damaged.

If you do notice a side effect, then stop use and contact your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist as soon as possible.
