Unlike products that work by just heating or cooling the skin, Voltarol® Emulgel® P contains an anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) called diclofenac which targets pain at its source. Voltarol® Emulgel® P provides a triple effect by relieving pain at source and reducing inflammation which helps speed up recovery.
The amount of gel needed will vary depending upon the size of the painful or swollen area. An amount ranging in size from a cherry to a walnut will usually be sufficient. Apply 3 to 4 times a day unless your doctor or pharmacist tells you otherwise, and allow at least 4 hours between applications of the gel.
Consult your doctor if pain and swelling do not improve within 7 days. Do not use the gel for longer than 7 days. The gel is not recommended for use in children under 14 years of age.
Contains diclofenac diethylammonium. Always read the label/leaflet.
