4.8 Undesirable Effects

Mild irritation of the skin (reddening, burning sensations and rarely swelling) have been reported, which may become more severe. Rashes have also been rarely reported.

4.9 Overdose

Overuse would probably cause localised redness, swelling and burning sensations of the skin owing to the counter-irritant effect of the product. Rashes may also develop. These should subside on withdrawal of the product, but occasionally may require treatment. Where this is indicated, relief would be obtained from gently swabbing the area with gauze or white lint soaked in vegetable oil. Rarely the application of a cream or ointment containing corticosteroid may be necessary. It is most unlikely that even the most excessive use of this product would lead to sufficient percutaneous absorption of active ingredients to cause systemic effects. In the case of accidental oral ingestion, the advice of a doctor should be sought.

5. Pharmacological Properties 5.1 Pharmacodynamic Properties

Pharmacotherapeutic group: other topical products for joint and muscular pain, ATC code: M02A.
