Adults and adolescents from 12 years: should be applied to the skin 3 or 4 times a day, rubbing lightly on the skin.

After application, wash your hands, except in the case where these are the area to be treated. The duration of treatment depends on the indication and the response obtained. The gel should not be used for more than 14 days for soft tissue injuries and/or rheumatism, or 21 days for arthritis pain, unless recommended by a physician. When used without a prescription, if the patient does not improve within 7 days or becomes worse, consult your doctor.
