Questions & Answers
Voltarol Emulgel P 180g is a medicated treatment containing a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. The active ingredient (diclofenac) penetrates the skin to provide relief of pain and inflammation. It works differently from heat or cooling rubs, which contain ingredients that stimulate nerves in the skin, to provide a sensation of heating or cooling.
Voltarol Emulgel P 180g is non-greasy, with no strong odour.
Emulgel is a technology designed for Voltarol Emulgel formulation. It helps the gel to penetrate deeply into the skin. In addition, the Emulgel technology uses a unique combination of a gel and cream to provide both a cooling and soothing effect when applied to the skin.
Gently rub or massage in a small amount of gel into the skin around painful or swollen area. The amount needed will vary depending on the size of the painful or swollen area; an amount ranging in size from a 1 penny to a 2 pence piece (2 to 4g) will usually be sufficient. Check the label of the product you are using for correct dosage information.
