What is Phorpain Ibuprofen Gel 10%? 

Phorpain Ibuprofen Gel is a topical solution used to treat a number of painful conditions affecting the joints and muscles, including back pain, sprains, strains and other sport injuries. It can also be used to relieve pain caused by mild to moderate arthritic conditions and nerve pain (neuralgia). This soothing gel contains the anti-inflammatory drug ibuprofen, which works to reduce pain and inflammation so you can go about your day with ease.

How to use this product

Always use Phorpain Ibuprofen Gel exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. This product is for external use only. Do not swallow. For adults and children aged 12 years and over, squeeze 2-5cm of gel from the tube and apply it to the affected area, massaging until it’s fully absorbed into the skin. Repeat every 4 hours if required. Do not apply this gel more than 4 times per day.

How does ibuprofen relieve muscle pain?

This topical gel contains ibuprofen, which belongs to a group of medicines known as non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Ibuprofen in a topical form can reduce pain and inflammation, so it’s particularly useful if you’re struggling with any painful conditions affecting the joints and muscles.
