Introducing ORALMEDIC, a revolutionary new mouth ulcer treatment that eliminates mouth ulcer pain in seconds!

ORALMEDIC provides you with a hygienic means of treating mouth ulcers. Simply snap one end of the stick to allow ORALMEDIC to permeate the cotton bud before application. As well as pain relief within seconds ORALMEDIC seals the infected area, so promoting natural healing.

So much for the science bit. Now this was only available at the pharmacy within my local Walmart/Asda so may not be available at smaller branches. You will not need a prescription for it and its only competitor, the identical product from Bonjela, was stacked on the normal shelves at over £7.

It is marked up at £2, which is already a sizeable discount off the normal selling price. My local Tesco has it at £5.86 which seems to be the going rate online. It went through the tills at a pound a pop. This is either a misprice or ASDA is getting rid of stock. The packets I got had a sell-by date of July 2009, although I am sure they will keep much longer than that.

As far as I can gather, ASDA operates a uniform pricing policy across its stores, so that if you do find any in your local store, then it should come up at the till at the same price until ASDA updates its pricelist database.

For what it is worth, these really do work and are much better than the messier gels you only get temporary relief with. One treatment really does kill the ulcer.

this stuff is brill ,I get ulcers all the time and this is the only product I have found to work it stings for a couple of seconds but ulcer is gone ,wouldn't use anything else now great price hope it is in Glasgow store:thumbsup:::-D

I recommend these.

A steal at £1

Just a fancy way of delivering anaesthetising drug, and putting a seal on it.

For faster healing, the product to get is "Adcortyl in Orabase" it is a Pharmacy only product, sticks like you wouldn't believe and isn't just about easing the pain, it helps it heal quickly.

I dunno. I looked this up and found you have to apply it 4 to 5 times daily. How is this any improvement over current gels and how is this quicker at healing than something you only have to apply once?

netdoctor.co.uk/med…tml

Also to the point, how much is it and can you get it over the counter?

It is pharmacy only, about 4 quid, and as you say needs several applications, but it works, pain relief just relieves pain.

If you like 2/3 week plus ulcers the size of 5p pieces, then stick with the pain relief, as you most definitely will need it!

I see. The Oralmedic is fine as it goes. One application and I can forget about the ulcer. Mine are gone in a week whether or not I use anything, but the for the couple of days when the ulcer is stinging, then pain relief is what I really need. My immune system takes care of the healing.

Thanks for the tip, though. Might be worth a punt if the price of the OM shoots right back up. By pharmacy, I take it you mean I need a doctor's prescription?

No, you can buy it over the counter, but only at Pharmacies.

This is great stuff! I used to use it all the time, but now I know I`m wheat and gluten intolerant I don`t tend to get any ulcers if I avoid the stuff.

Thanks for this guys am going to give this one a go, have suffered with ulcers all my life and never really found anything that really works, I currently use pineapple as this seems to be the best I have found yet, it stings like hell but it clears the ulcer up nicely.

Actually I disagree - this is no anaesthetic - it is a compound of sulphuric acid which is used to chemically cauterise the ulcer and effectively create a "scab" over the wound too allow the body to heal itself. Despite the intense pain when used on large ulcers, it is indeed highly recommendable. :prop:

I've tried just about every ulcer treatment available and while I acknowledge that some things work better for some than others, I've found Adcortyl in Orabase to be messy, tricky to administer and ineffective.

I use Boots' version of this, and it is the ONLY thing that fixes ulcers immediately. Pain is gone next day, ulcer healed in 3 days. Top Stuff!

Just to clear things up -->it is not an anaesthetic. It stings!!!!! when applied on. It react with the skin on the ulcer to form a coating. The skin that is coated lost its pain sensor (hence the anaesthetic feeling). This product does not heal the ulcer, merely protect it from external damage (e.g from food etc) and allow normal healing process. Good for big painful ulcer.

On the other hand, "Adcortyl in Orabase" does heals ulcers quicker than other treatment. Does not provide instant relieve, messy to put on, troublesome, expensive, etc etc etc. but if u have small and many ulcers... spare u all the stinging... OR if u have big ulcers (normally take up to 3 weeks to heal), adcortyl can heal it sooner (mb reduce it the time by half)

I bought some bonjela cool yesterday...its horrible, its hurt so much

Yes you are right... it claims to "Provides pain relief as nerve endings are covered." yet in effect is a Medieval cautery type treatment, which is going to be pretty painful!

I don't personally find Adcortyl that much of a problem to put on, and the only drawback is waste - a lot sticks to a wet finger, but would agree to it halfing healing time.

Adcortyl in orabase is the best treatment on the market. If you go to your GP it's what he will prescribe as doctors know this is the only treatment that will actually heal your ulcer....the others only mask the pain. It used to be prescription only but can now be bought OTC.

"burns" the area to seal it like our grandmothers used to do with iodium solution on cotton ages ago. That'd be two quid and the flask would last for 10years. As long as you're careful with staining the bathroom and your fingers that still works.

Bonjela is by far the worst of the relief gels and it wears off the quickest. Stings much more than this treatment. Try Rinstead if you want something kinder. In fact, anything but Bonjela.

I tried iodine years ago and it just stung without doing much, probably due to the ethanol it is mixed in with. Could be that iodine mixes today are weaker than they used to be way back in the day.

i second this.

Adcortyl is my usual medication for an ulcer outbreak.

one time i got about 3 or 4 on both lower and upper inner mouth the doc prescribed steroids for me which i just dropped onto the offending "craters!" (ouch) - they 'd gone within 36 hours :-)

I've suffered from mouth ulcers my whole life. I've found out that the only thing that works is mouthwash. I use Dentyl PH mouthwash and I hardly ever get them now.

I have recently seen a consultant about recurrent mouth ulcers and they said bongela etc anything acidic basically kills the nerves where you apply it and is evil! They told me to use Gengigel to promote healing (tis expensive). Also told me to take high vitamin B6 B10 for 4 weeks.

I am plagued by ulcers and find these do wonders for me, only product I've found that has any impact, shall definetly be having a look in my local asda tomorrow morning

I have suffered from mouth ulcers all my life. I have tried many products but Oralmedic is the only product I have found that works. After using Oralmedic, ulcers are always gone within 2 days. A great product and a fantastic price.

none in my local store, only had bonjela
