Benefits of Amlenox Oral Paste

In Mouth ulcers

Mouth ulcers are small painful sores on inner lips, gums, tongue, roof of the mouth or throat that may interfere with eating, drinking and even talking. Amlenox Oral Paste blocks the release of those chemicals that are responsible for pain sensation and inflammation. It forms a coating over the sores and therefore, provides relief from pain, discomfort and symptoms of inflammation such as redness, swelling or burning sensation due to mouth ulcers. This makes it easier for you to go about your daily activities. Continue using it as advised by the doctor to get maximum benefit.

How Amlenox Oral Paste works

Amlenox Oral Paste is an anti-aphthous ulcer medication. It works by blocking the production of certain chemical messengers that cause inflammation (swelling), redness and pain due to mouth sores/ulcers. It does so by sticking to the wet surfaces of the mouth and forming a protective film over the ulcer/injured surfaces. This speeds up healing.
