What is Anbesol Liquid Rapid Relief For Mouth Ulcers?

Anbesol Liquid is a rapid pain relief medication for mouth ulcers, denture irritation, and teething pain. It works as a local anaesthetic to numb the area, eliminating the pain and destroying bacteria that could irritate your ulcers. It gets to work fast, and just 2 quick applications could be enough to ease your painful mouth ulcers.


Who is Anbesol Liquid suitable for?

Anbesol is ideal for anyone suffering from mouth ulcers or other kinds of mouth pain, such as irritation from ill-fitting dentures. It can be given to children as young as 5 months old, making it the perfect remedy for all the family and a great way to ease the teething pain for little ones.


What are mouth ulcers?

Mouth ulcers are a common problem that lots of people have to deal with every so often. They’re a small sore that occurs inside your mouth, or on your cheeks, tongue, or lips and they can be very irritating when you eat, drink, or talk. Mouth ulcers aren’t harmful or contagious and they usually clear up by themselves within 2 weeks.


How will this product ease mouth ulcer pain?

Anbesol liquid contains the active ingredient lidocaine, which works as a local anaesthetic. This means it helps to stop the sensation of pain wherever you apply it, making it the ideal remedy for irritating mouth ulcers that flare up as you eat, drink, or talk. It also contains Chlorocresol and cetylpyridinium chloride, which help to kill the bacteria in your mouth, preventing further irritation.


Is this liquid suitable to use for someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before taking any medicine, including Anbesol. This will help you to be sure that the medicine is safe for both you and your baby. If you are breastfeeding, small amounts of the lidocaine in this product can pass to your baby through your breastmilk, but the small quantity should not be enough to cause harm if you use this product as directed.


Can other medicines be used when using Anbesol Liquid?

Apply the liquid to the affected area with your fingertip without diluting it. If you apply Anbesol twice right away this will usually be enough to ease your pain, however, you can apply this product again after 3 hours if necessary.

Repeat after 3 hours if necessary, but do not use more than 6 times in any 24-hour period.
