1. WHAT IGLÜ RAPID RELIEF GEL IS
AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR
• Iglü Rapid Relief Gel is a treatment for fast,
effective relief of pain from common mouth
ulcers, sore gums and denture rubbing.
• The product, which at first looks like a pale
yellow paste, forms a smooth, flexible and
adhesive protective gel coating when it
becomes wet on contact with saliva inside
• Iglü Rapid Relief Gel is suitable for use by
adults, the elderly and children over
7 years of age.
• The product works in three ways:
• by forming a gel coating to protect the
sensitive and delicate area of the mouth
lining as it heals, and
• by the actions of its two active
ingredients, lidocaine hydrochloride
and aminoacridine hydrochloride,
which work by:
• stopping pain (lidocaine hydrochloride
is a local anaesthetic), and
• preventing infection (aminoacridine
hydrochloride is an antiseptic).
2. BEFORE YOU USE IGLÜ RAPID
Do not use Iglü Rapid Relief Gel if you are
allergic (hypersensitive) to lidocaine
hydrochloride, aminoacridine hydrochloride
or any of the other ingredients of Iglü Rapid
Relief Gel listed in Section 6.
Take special care when using this product:
• Apply it sparingly.
3. HOW TO USE IGLÜ RAPID
Only use Iglü Rapid Relief Gel for localised
application inside the mouth for the conditions
it is recommended for.
For adults, the elderly and children over
7 years of age:
• Wash your hands before and after use.
• If you are treating several ulcers,
repeat steps 1 to 3 below for each one:
1. Use a clean tissue to gently remove
excess moisture/saliva from the ulcer area.
2. Squeeze a small quantity of Iglü Rapid
Relief Gel onto a clean, dry finger tip
or cotton bud, and then apply it directly
to the ulcer using a single, gentle wiping
action (avoid dabbing).
3. At first, the product may seem quite
pasty and sticky, but after contact with
saliva, the product will form a flexible
and adhesive gel coating over and
around the ulcer area.
• Re-apply the gel, following steps 1 to 3
above, as necessary for each ulcer.
The aim is to keep the ulcer area(s)
protected with a coating of gel. As a guide,
each application should normally last for
an hour or more, although, on occasions,
eating or drinking may make it necessary

overdosage of the active ingredients is unlikely
to occur because of the low concentrations
used and the small pack size. Overdose may
make swallowing difficult due to the loss of

drink going down the wrong way. Generalised
numbness of the mouth may also lead to biting
the inside of your mouth when eating.
Excessive overdose may also lead to
generalised side effects. If you experience
any of the following, seek urgent medical
attention; nervousness, drowsiness,
breathing problems or low blood pressure.
If you occasionally forget to use Iglü
Rapid Relief Gel do not worry, just carry on
using it when you remember.
