Mucopain Gel (Benzocaine)
What is Mucopain Gel (Benzocaine) used for?
Mucopain Gel (Benzocaine) is a topical gel used to treat pain affecting the mucous membranes caused by mouth ulcers or other similar conditions. The medication operates by blocking nerve signals sent to the brain that indicate pain. Your doctor may also prescribe its use for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Mucopain Gel (Benzocaine)?
Mucopain Gel (Benzocaine) should be used according to your doctor`s instructions and those included with the packaging to get the safest and most effective results from treatment.
