Difflam Orl Rinse

Difflam is an easy to use rinse that can be used to treat symptoms of sore throats, gum pain, mouth ulcers and other oral pains. It contains the active ingredient benzydamine hydrochloride, which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that reduces inflammation and pain in the mouth and throat.

The active ingredient in Difflam is an non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that acts similarly to ibuprofen. It is a painkiller that can be used to relieve moderate pain and reduce inflammation. It is generally more effective when applied directly to the area suffering from pain.

Many other mouth rinses differ in that they use an anaesthetic to numb pain.

Mint flavoured Difflam oral rinse can be used by adults and children of over 12 years of age. It is easy to use as a mouthwash. It is dispensed in 200ml bottles with a useful measuring cap to help get the dosage just right.

  • Provides rapid relief that lasts a long time, reducing inflammation and pain from a sore throat
  • Can be used to treat discomfort, soreness, and swelling in the throat
  • Is mint flavoured
  • 200 ml bottle with measuring cap to dispense accurate dosages
  • Can be used by adults or children of over 12 years of age
  • Is anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anaesthetic
