Bonjela Adult Gel - 15g
Gel Treatment for common mouth ulcers
bonjela and bonjela Cool Mint gel have new packaging and usage advice, following a recommendation by the Commission on Human Medicines. The Commission has advised that topical products containing Choline Salicylate - the main active ingredient in bonjela and bonjela Cool - should no longer be used by children under the age of 16.
This announcement is made following an investigation into links between topical Salicylates and Reye's Syndrome. The recommendation brings the regulation of Choline Salicylate in line with other Salicylates such as aspirin, which were similarly revised in 2002.
The changes to bonjela and bonjela Cool are precautionary measures. Parents whose children have previously used the products can be assured that there is very little risk of adverse reaction.
If there has been no reaction to date, you need not worry. However we advise you not to use these products on children under 16 years of age. bonjela teething gel can be used on children between two months and 16 years as it has a different formulation. As with any health issue, parents are advised to seek advice from a GP, health visitor or pharmacist.
bonjela Once is not subject to the new recommendation as it has a different formulation.
