Bonjela is a pleasant tasting gel that provides relief from the pain and discomfort associated with mouth ulcers & sores and dentures.
A mouth ulcer is the loss or erosion of part of the delicate tissue that lines the inside of the mouth (mucous membrane). Some of the causes include certain drugs, chemicals and infectious diseases such as herpes or thrush. The most common cause is mechanical injury, such as accidentally biting your cheek.
In most cases, mouth ulcers are harmless and resolve by themselves in a few days without the need for medical treatment. Aphthous ulcers are recurring ulcers with no known cause that affect around 20 per cent of the population.
See your doctor if your mouth ulcers don’t clear up within a few days, or if you are troubled by frequent attacks.
Bonjela Mouth Ulcer Gel is not suitable for babies under 4 months.
