Millions of people in the UK suffer from chronic pain in muscles and joints. An estimated nine million suffer from arthritis* and it is believed that one in four of the over-50s suffer chronic knee pain**.
While severe and prolonged pain needs specialist care, countless people manage mild pain at home. Deep Relief, from the Mentholatum Company, is an effective, dual-action pain-relieving gel. It is available in 30g and 50g tubes and, from pharmacies only, a 100g pack which can be used, on the advice of a pharmacist, to help mild arthritis pain.
While many ibuprofen gels contain just one active ingredient, Mentholatum’s Deep Relief contains two – pain-relieving ibuprofen and levomenthol – to help soothe pain Levomenthol produces a soothing effect, while the prescription-strength ibuprofen reduces inflammation and brings pain relief.
A spokesman for The Mentholatum Company says: “Topical products such as Deep Relief offer effective pain relief with fewer potential adverse effects than pills and tablets with the same active ingredient.”
Deep Relief is a clear, non-sticky and non-greasy gel with a menthol fragrance which is absorbed through the skin to help reduce inflammation at the point of pain.
Deep Relief is available from pharmacies, including Boots, nationwide.
