Difflam Gel can be used for the temporary relief of pain and inflamation that may occur in acute soft tissue injuries such as sprains, strains, sports injuries (eg. tennis elbow), tendonitis and bursitis
Difflam Gel contains the active ingredient benzydamine. Benzydamine belongs to a family of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). They work to reduce pain and inflammation in the body by reducing the production of hormone-like substances that promote the inflammatory response.
Benzydamine does not treat the underlying cause of the inflammation, however, and should not be used for extended periods of time without medical advice. Benzydamine also possesses local anaesthetic activity.
