About Fenbid Gel

Fenbid gel contains the active ingredient Ibuprofen and can be used on individuals over the age of 12 years old. Ibuprofen belongs to a group of medicines known as NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and it works by reducing inflammation and pain in the area it is applied to. Fenbid gel is usually used for aches and pains associated with conditions such as backache, muscular aches, strains and sprains, and neuralgia. As Fenbid Gel is a topical preparation it is particularly useful as it can be applied directly to the affected area of pain. Fenbid Gel is available from our online pharmacy in 2 different strengths, 5% and 10%.
