Teejel Lg

Teejel® Gel

Teejel® Gel is a topical treatment for effective relief of mouth ulcers and teething pain. The gel has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. Since the mouth is well endowed with pain nerve endings, lesions of the oral mucosa can cause pain levels out of proportion to their size. Even a small ulcer, which elsewhere would be considered trivial, can cause the sufferer great discomfort, particularly if under pressure from a denture. Teejel® Gel is mainly used for teething babies, but can also be used by adults for the treatment of pain and discomfort of the mouth, whatever its cause.

Betadine® Range

Betadine® Range

For more than four decades, Betadine®  has been used in homes and hospitals worldwide as an important first line of defense against topical infections.

Betadine®  is a multivalent broad spectrum local antiseptic (a medicine used to prevent germs from growing), which means that it kills a wide range of bacteria, fungi and viruses. The active ingredient, povidone-iodine, works by gradually releasing iodine from the povidone-iodine complex; it is the iodine that is effective in killing the germs. Besides bacteria, viruses and fungi, povidone-iodine is also effective against other organisms, namely protozoa, yeasts, cysts and spores. 

Antimicrobial resistance, when a medicine is no longer effective to overcome infections, is a global problem and is spreading. This can result in prolonged illness, and even death for the patient. It occurs when micro-organisms change and anti-microbial medicine (for example antibiotics) are no longer effective. This is not only true for bacteria but also for viruses and fungi. Povidone-iodine has not been associated with bacterial resistance, and can be considered as an option for the prevention and treatment of infections. This is the reason why Betadine®, with its rapid mode of action against microbes, is a well-known brand, with various different applications, that will prevent and treat infections throughout the body.
