A mouth ulcer occurs on the mucous membrane of the oral cavity. The most common causes of mouth ulcers are stress, overconsumption of acidic foods, or vitamin deficiencies. An oral antiulcerant eases the discomfort caused due to mouth ulcers.
ICPA offers three oral anti-ulcerants – Hexigel, Mucopain, and Trioplast.
Hexigel contains chlorhexidine gluconate 1% gel which by virtue of its antibacterial action ensures rapid healing of ulcers and is also prescribed in localized gingivitis.
Mucopain contains benzocaine 20% which is a local anesthetic. Benzocaine offers instant mucosal pain relief from oral ulcers and oral mucosal injuries.
Trioplast contains triamcinolone 0.1% w/v topical gel, which is a topical corticosteroid. Trioplast combines the benefits of triamcinolone with superior orabase technology to ensure superior adhesion and relief of anti-inflammatory ulcers.

For Instant Mucosal Pain Relief
Benzocaine I.P. 20% w/w in a water-miscible base
Mode of Action:
Topical anaesthetic agents such as Mucopain penetrate the oral mucosa effectively and offer local anaesthetic activity that lasts for 10-20 minutes. The poor water solubility of Mucopain makes it safe for topical use. Local anaesthetics reversibly block nerve transmission, when applied to a limited area of the body. They bind to the sodium channels in the nerve membrane and prevent the entry of sodium ions in response to the membrane’s depolarization.
For production of topical anaesthesia of all accessible mucous membrane, except eyes. For temporary local relief of pain associated with dental conditions and oropharyngeal disorders.
Directions for use:
Use as and when required.
Discontinue medication and consult a doctor if sensitivity or irritation occurs. Safe use of Mucopain is not established during pregnancy on the foetus. Do not cover the affected area with cotton or other material. Not for infant use.
