Gel to treat various pains
Voltaren® Emulgel® is used for the relief of pain, inflammation and swelling in soft tissue injuries: trauma of the tendon, ligament, muscles and joints e.g. due to sprains, strains, bruises and backache. It can also be used for the relief of pain of non-serious osteoarthritis. When applied to the skin, it cools and sooths, with a powerful active ingredient that helps reduce inflammation and relieves pain.
Voltaren® Emulgel® contains the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, diclofenac. Diclofenac inhibits the activity of the COX enzyme, creating an anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effect.
Adults and children aged 12 years and above: Apply over the affected area 3 or 4 times daily. The amount needed depends on the size of the painful area: 2g to 4g (quantity ranging in size from a cherry to a walnut) is sufficient for an area of 400-800 cm2. After application the hands should be washed unless they are the site being treated.
Voltaren® Emulgel® is available over the counter.
