What Anbesol Teething Gel is and what it is used for

Anbesol Teething Gel contains 1.0%w/w of lidocaine hydrochloride, 0.1%w/w of chlorocresol, and 0.02%w/w of cetylpyridinium chloride.

Lidocaine hydrochloride is a local anesthetic that works by stopping the sensation of pain. Chlorocresol and cetylpyridinium chloride kill bacteria.

Anbesol Teething Gel is used to help relieve pain and discomfort associated with teething, in children from 5 months of age, when other non-medicinal methods such as massaging of the gums or use of teething rings do not provide the necessary relief.

The product may also be used for the temporary relief of pain caused by recurrent mouth ulcers and denture irritation.

What you need to know before you use Anbesol Teething Gel

Do not use Anbesol Teething Gel:

  • If you are allergic to lidocaine hydrochloride, chlorocresol, cetylpyridinium chloride, other anaesthetics similar to lidocaine or any of the other ingredients in this medicine
  • You have porphyria (a disease which causes stomach pain, constipation, changes in the colour of urine, skin rashes and disturbed behaviour).
  • If your child is under 5 months old.
  • At the same time as other products containing lidocaine.

Do not use more Anbesol Liquid than recommended (as listed in Section 3) as this may result in the active ingredients being absorbed into the body causing serious side effects, such as convulsions (fits).
