Medication features

  • Targeted oral pain relief from mouth ulcers, teething, denture irritation
  • Anticeptic and anaesthetic for quick acting and effective pain relief


Anbesol Liquid contains 0.9%w/w of lidocaine hydrochloride, 0.1%w/w of chlorocresol and 0.02%w/w of cetylpyridinium chloride.

Lidocaine hydrochloride is a local anaesthetic which works by stopping the sensation of pain. Chlorocresol and cetylpyridinium chloride kill bacteria.

Anbesol Liquid is used to help relieve pain and discomfort associated with teething, in children from 5 months of age, when other non-medicinal methods such as massaging of the gums or use of teething rings do not provide necessary relief.

The product may also be used by adults, children and the elderly for the temporary relief of pain caused by recurrent mouth ulcers and denture irritation.
