Diclofenac Fiterman 10 mg/g, gel

Short description

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory topical treatment of first choice in pain caused by trauma or chronic inflammatory processes.

Advantages

Menthol gives a cooling sensation at application site, which contributes to rapid pain relief.
Menthol, by its rubefacient properties, it is also an absorption promoter for diclofenac. Thus, it increases the amount of diclofenac able to penetrate the profound skin layers after topical application, down to the source of pain and inflammation.
The gel form allows the administration without massage, with a particular benefit in the case of traumatic conditions where intense pain does not allow the massage.
Different pack sizes of 25 g, 45g, 100g, allow an individualization of treatment costs with period and area to apply on.
