Overview

Introduction

Boromet Gel is a combination medicine used in the treatment of mouth ulcers. It prevents the growth of the microorganisms that cause gum disease, ulcers, and other mouth infections by damaging bacterial DNA.

Boromet Gel is only meant for external use and should be used as advised by your doctor. The medicine must be used as the label or suggested by the doctor. A thin layer of the medicine should be applied only to the affected areas of the mouth such as gums, inner cheeks, and lips, or tongue with clean and dry hands. The medicine must not be swallowed and should be rinsed out after the application. If it gets into your eyes, nose, or vagina rinse with water immediately. It may take several days to weeks for your symptoms to improve, but you should keep using this medicine regularly. The course of the treatment should be completed to ensure better efficacy of the medicine. If your condition does not improve or gets worse, you should talk to your doctor.

The medicine may lead to some side effects such as tingling and burning sensation at the application site. These are usually self-limiting. Serious side effects are rare. You must consult the doctor if you experience any allergic reaction (rashes, itching, swelling, shortness of breath, etc.).

Before taking this medicine, it is important to tell your doctor if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines for the same disease or other diseases. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should take this medicine with proper consultation and caution. If you are a known allergic to the medicine, you must refrain from using this medicine. You should consult the doctor about prescribing an alternative medicine for your condition.

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Metallic taste
    Keep your mouth clean. Brush your teeth and rinse your mouth with saltwater or mouthwash after each snack or meal. Use plastic or glass utensils if the food tastes like metal.

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Clean and dry the affected area and apply the gel. Wash your hands after applying, unless hands are the affected area.

How Boromet Gel works

Boromet Gel is a combination of two medicines: Benzocaine and Metronidazole which treat mouth sores (ulcers). Benzocaine is a local anesthetic. It works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to brain which decreases pain sensation in the mouth. Metronidazole is an antibiotic which kills the bacteria and other microorganisms that cause gum disease, ulcers and other mouth infections by damaging bacterial DNA.
