Awesome works like a charm
My filling came out on Sunday as usual and the nerve was exposed. I was laying in a bath with my head in the water. Picture the scene a 6 foot 4 guy weighing 120 kg in a 1.4 meter bath with my feet on the wall and my head in the water with my shoulders all squinched up to get relief. Went to the chemist and the lady gave me this sm33. I was willing to try anything by this time. I put it on thick by just sucking it out of the tube and placing it on my tooth with my tongue. As I am lying here writing this I have a numb mouth and don't want to pull my tooth out with a pair of pliers. Works great. I will go and buy the lady a bunch of flowers on Monday after going to the dentist. Awesome stuff

One of the Most Effective OTC at Numbing
This gel is perfect for ulcers, it stings at first but within a couple of minutes you can no longer feel any pain. The active ingredient lidocaine, is unparalleled as a numbing agent and nothing else you can get OTC will work as effectively and quickly as it does. Reapply every few hours and my mouth is given the chance to be pain free and combined with an antiseptic mouthwash my ulcers are well on their way out.
My nearly 8 mth old
is teething and this has been a lifesaver for us both. It does have a strange smell and he hates the taste and blows
raspberries after application BUT it works within a minute! My grumpy, sad baby has some relief and becomes his happy self again. I wont use any other teething gel now as this one actually provides him with relief.
Pain before the calm
I have been using this for years. Works well but might be painful when first applied. I would also recommend flossing and brushing teeth with a salt toothpaste and rinsing with xylitol beforehand to lower the bacteria level in the mouth. Also helps to get adequate sleep as I am more prone to mouth ulcers when the immune system is weak.
this is awful, applied this trash t to 3 ulcers; the pain it causes when after applying is ridiculous - I have a high pain tolerance but this was dumb. My eyes were watering, and the damn trash only lasts 10-15 minutes before I have to reapply and go through the damn pain again. It sounds like it’s ideal for teething; but damn oath fools don’t use this trash on any open skin or ulcers - just doing ya self damage!!
i get mouth ulcers so very often, nothing else works for me not salt nor vegemite or anything. it taste good and does the job in at least a week. i am also terrible when it comes to spicy foods this works really well and stings the tiniest bit, i would say this has been the product that has worked the best for me personally and honestly!
Stings like crazy
I used this stuff on my lip for a bit each time it nearly sent me thru the roof with the horrendously bad stinging (I have high pain threshold) I wondered how babies tolerate it, once the sting went after about 30sec went numb which was want I wanted to stop the pain, I have decided not to use it as it hurts so much, so I am using savlon antiseptic this does not sting at all, but then again it is not numbing lip either, but is like a bit of moisturizer.
love this teething gel
i find it really effective better then other brands and the ingredients look good too . You definitely need to get this gel if your little one is teething. My little one used to be screaming in pain at night but not anymore with this. Can be purchased from most chemists.
My poor 1 year old had teeth coming in left right and centre since 6 months old. I tried everything from nurophen, panadol, and other teething gels. Nothing was working until the pharmacist recommend Sm-33. It gave him instant relief. It worked wonders. Only wish it came in a bigger tube.
I found this the only brand and safest especially with babies ,. One of my babies is allergic to a f
I found this to be the best and safest as one of my babies is allergic to a few thing's and being a. VERY fussy mother when it comes to any kind of medical product with my children's well being that I research everything about the products & their fellow companies. I DO & have recommended this product even to anomyous child protection services.. I very satisfied & do recommend this product because when you hold your own or anyone else's baby/ child in your arm's and they are in so much pain & you want to take that pain away the desperation in ...your own Heart becomes sooooo strong that there is nothing else more important to & in Life then to fix the problem.. I'm sure from the first moment every parent in this Universe give's that/them unborn child the promise/vow/oath to protect them from any harm or pain in this world.. Well we have to at least try ....
Creates more pain then relieving!
The Sm-33 was recommended by the chemist assistant - apparently this is the best one...
When I applied the gel, the pain was horrible...like I froze from the pain - I can take pain well, but that hurt! it stings and makes it throb even more. The pain lasts for about 30secs then it numbs the area..for a whole 10min! The ulcer pain returned with no change of pain.
The instructions advise to apply it every 3 hours!!!! if it was only for every 3 hours then the relief should last for 3 hours! - I think the trust Bonjela is the winner still

More pain than it soothed.
I went to the chemist, they said this was the best for mouth ulcers.
Without knowing, better i was like ok sure, asked them any instructions and anything i need to know before hand then brought it.
Did everything as instructed by the chemist - apply every 3 hrs and do not use it for more than 5 days. Instead go see my local GP.
So i used it for that day, applied it 2 times in 6 hours. (it stung alot, but it did smoothe the pain after awhile for a little bit, even tho moving my mouth or lips still hurts)
So on the 9th hour, i went to the m...
Better see a GP
It relives the pain to certain extent but does not resolve the problem. My GP says it is of no use......at least it's not poisonous and I can swallow it. I heard it's more suitable for little kids as they tend to swallow everything in there mouth...Not sure if I will use it again.
Have been using SM33 for years
Love this product, so much better then Bonjela.
Although it tastes horrible to kids the numbess once it starts taking affect works great, I use this on my 13 year old still to help his mouth with his new braces and his wisdom teeth coming through.
I have recomended SM33 to so many of my friends/family for their little ones and all feedback from them has been positive by all.
Stings really bad
Chemist recommended this for my mouth ulcers, put it on and nearly went through the roof. Wow did it sting.
However once the stinging subsides he does numb the ulcers.
Please be careful when putting on babies if they have any broken skin! I believe it is good for cold sores also.
So Much Yes
Tried SM-33 for the first time when my son was 18months & cutting his eye teeth (natural remedies weren't doing anything to ease the pain). Worked wonders.
Used it once on my 2nd bub and worked well for him also. I don't think you should use it unless nothing else is easing your babies pain - natural remedies first.
Relieves gums quickly
My sister recommended this to me via a friend and I'm glad I purchased it. I notice when my son is teething and I put this on his gum, he calms down within five minutes. It's a good product
Works quickly, easy to put on (provided child complies!), son doesn't seem to hate it when I put it on
