For creams or gels, apply a thin layer on the affected area and gently rub it into the skin as required 2 or 3 times a day.
For plasters, apply 1 plaster on the affected area as required. Each plaster will last for 12 hours. The plasters are not waterproof.
Do not exceed the frequency of use recommended by the manufacturer.
Do not apply BOTH the cream or gel and the plaster on the same area of skin.
Avoid applying the medication on irritated or broken skin and areas near the eyes, mouth, nose and genitals.
As topical NSAIDs are used frequently or when needed to relieve pain and swelling, it is not necessary to apply it on a fixed schedule. Please check with your healthcare professional if you are unsure.
If you did not experience improvement in pain or it worsens after 7 days of treatment, your condition may be too serious for self-treatment. You should consult a healthcare professional.
