Calgel is an excellent tool that will help alleviate the condition when teething in a child. In the pharmacy, the drug costs from 240 rubles. Dentinox will cost 200 rubles. In composition, they are identical.
My gums often bleed, and recently a wisdom tooth has also been added to this. The pain was terrible and in the pharmacy I was advised by Kalgel (photo), the reviews on the Internet were positive. A box of medication is purple in color and the composition is written on the side. In addition to the tube, inside is the instructions for use. The lid sits tight, the child will not be able to open. I did not like the smell of the medicine, but after several uses I stopped paying attention to it.
After the first use, the pain disappeared in about an hour, I was very surprised. I apply gel 2 times a day and do not feel pain at all. For a 10-gram tube in a pharmacy, I paid 270 rubles. I am very pleased with the result, I keep it in a pharmacy, in case the wisdom tooth gets sick again.
For many mothers, the period when a child begins to erupt teeth is a complete nightmare. Our daughter started it at 4 months. It was very painful for the child, and they advised me to buy Calgel, and use it with Nurofen. The drug is sold in a purple cardboard box. The smell of the gel is pleasant and unobtrusive, jelly-like consistency.
The first teeth cut through very hard, the daughter refused to eat. Nurofen reduced pain, but it can not be given often. Therefore, I began to use Calgel, applied 3 times a day. An hour after use, the child began to eat normally. Allergic reactions to the drug, we did not have.
- Pleasant taste.
- Can be used from 5 months.
- Does not contain sugar and aspirin.
- Anesthesia does not last very long
- The consistency of the gel is not very suitable for rubbing into the gums.
- Consumed not economically.
Last year I bought gel for 250 rubles, and now it costs 320 rubles. I was very pleased with Calgel, now we always have it in the first-aid kit.
Teething our baby went quite smoothly, but there were crazy days. When the baby could not calm down and woke up in the middle of the night. After reading the reviews, I sent my husband to the pharmacy for an effective drug, he brought Calgel. The drug cost 300 rubles.
Features of the composition:
- It has a yellowish color.
- Does not contain sugar.
- Sweet to taste, like a child.
Cons of Calgel:
- Pain relief does not last very long, sometimes the child does not have enough time to calm down and fall asleep.
- The consistency of the gel resists rubbing into the gums, most of it is smeared on the finger.
- You can apply no more than 3 times a day.
- The analgesic effect lasts 10 minutes.
We did not like the drug, especially for such a high price. It is suitable only for those babies who are not disturbed by teething teeth. But if the pain is strong enough, then you need to look for another medicine.
In the summer, our baby started teething and immediately 4 pieces. The gums are slightly swollen and start to bleed. To facilitate the condition of the child, I bought a lot of different drugs at the pharmacy. One of the first drugs we tried was Kalgel.
The composition has an anesthetic and antiseptic effect. The gel has a viscous consistency and a yellowish color. The analgesic effect occurs 5 minutes after application and lasts 15 minutes. This is quite enough for the child to calm down and fall asleep.
The anti-inflammatory effect of the composition is negligible; for this, it is better to use Cholisal In cases where Calgel did not help, I additionally used Nurofen, but this was not very often.
In general, I am satisfied with the action of Kalgel, for a short anesthesia is a good option, the reviews did not lie.
