There is definitely the potential for the active ingredient of Voltaren gel to reach the systemic circulation and irritate the gastric mucosa.
Voltaren gel should be used with caution in patients with ulcerative colitis and under medical supervision.
Check with your doctor before using Voltaren gel.
