Apply a pea-sized blob of gel (see circle shown above), to a clean fingertip and spread gently onto the sore area of the gum. If necessary, repeat the dose after 3 hours. Do not use more than 6 times in one day (24 hour period). Stop treatment when your child’s symptoms settle. Do not use for more than 7 days for each teething episode. If your child’s symptoms worsen, do not improve after 7 days of treatment or you are concerned that your child is unwell, talk to a health care professional. If your child vomits, spits or swallows the medicine, do not use any more product immediately. Wait 3 hours before using the medicine again.
