For the treatment of mouth ulcers
Kenalog in Orabase is used for relieving
tenderness, pain, inflammation and ulceration
of the inside of the mouth or the gums. The
sticky paste keeps the medicine on the
sore area and protects it while the medicine
relieves the soreness, reduces the swelling
and accelerates the healing process.
Directions for use:
• Press a small dab (about the size of a five cent coin) onto the sore area in your mouth,
allowing a thin film to develop on the ulcer. You may need to use a little more if the sore
is large.
• Ensure the sore area is covered completely, as coating the ulcer protects the area so the
healing can begin. If applied correctly, a smooth, slippery film should develop.
• Do not rub in or attempt to spread the paste as it might cause a gritty sensation in the
mouth and cause the paste to crumble.
• Apply the paste as often as recommended by your healthcare professional.
• The paste is best applied after meals and at bedtime to allow the medication to work
effectively.
• If symptoms persist for longer than 5 days, please consult your doctor, pharmacist or
dentist.
