Algesal Cream - 50g

Algesal Cream - 50g

Algesal® (diethylamine salicylate), 10% diethylamine salicylate, a derivative of salicylic acid , is a cost effective and simple, first line treatment for rheumatic and minor musculoskeletal conditions including lumbago, fibrositis, sciatica, bruises and strains.


Presentation: Off white, lavender scented cream. Each tube of Algesal® contains diethylamine salicylate 10% w/w.

Indications: For symptomatic relief of rheumatic and minor musculo-skeletal conditions including lumbago, fibrositis, sciatica, bruises and strains.

Dosage and Administration: Adults (including the elderly) and children 6 years and over - For cutaneous use. Apply three times daily to the affected area, massaging until cream is fully absorbed. Children under 6 years - Not recommended. Contraindications: Hypersensitivity to the active substances or to any of the excipients. Algesal® should not be used if the surface of the skin is broken. Algesal® contains terpene derivatives (ie camphor) as excipients, which can lower the epileptogenic threshold and, at excessive doses, lead to neurological accidents such as convulsions in infants and children. Therefore, Algesal® should not be used by children who have a history of convulsions. Hypersensitivity to aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (including when taken by mouth) especially where associated with a history of asthma.

Precautions: Consult your doctor before use if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, asthmatic or taking any other medicines. For external use only. Not to be used on broken skin. Avoid contact with eyes and sensitive areas of the skin. Always try on a small area first. Always use sparingly. Some people may experience discomfort, particularly those with sensitive skin, or if used in hot weather/after a hot bath. Temporary skin redness /burning sensation may occur. Discontinue use if excessive irritation or unwanted effects occur. Not to be used on children under 6 years of age. If symptoms persist consult your doctor. Keep all medicines out of the reach and sight of children.

Interactions: Warfarin-potentiates effects.

Lumbago is mild to severe pain or discomfort in the lower back. The pain may be sudden and severe or last several months. Lumbago is often caused by physical activity at work such as lifting, carrying or sitting awkwardly and is most common in younger people.

This is a common 'rheumatic' disorder – where complaints arise from muscles, tendons and ligaments rather than the joints. Although the tissues involved do not suffer long-lasting damage, the symptoms may continue for some time.

Sciatica is the name given to any pain that is caused by irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body, running from the back of the pelvis, through the buttocks, and all the way down both legs, ending at the feet.

When something compresses or irritates the sciatic nerve, it can cause a pain that radiates out from the lower back and travels down the leg to your calf. This pain can range from being mild to very painful. A slipped disc is the most common identified cause of sciatica, but in some cases there is no obvious cause.

Bruises & strains
A muscle strain is a stretch or tear in the muscle fibres. This is often called 'pulling a muscle'. Usually muscle strains happen if the muscle is overstretched or tightens too strongly.
