Candid Gel Description:
Candid Gel is a combination of two medicines: Choline Salicylate and Lidocaine Topical.tCholine Salicylate is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) which cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling). Lidocaine Topical is a local anesthetic. It works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to brain which decreases pain sensation.
Candid Gel is used in the treatment of mouth sores.
No common side effects seen.
