What is Izun Pharmaceutical Soothe and Cure?
Soothe and Cure is a relatively new oral adhesive patch from Izun Pharmaceuticals that claims to treat aphthous ulcers by preventing irritation and abrasions while reducing inflammation. As a result, the body gets a chance to recover from the ulceration. It promises to create a microenvironment that promotes healing while aiding in the reduction of inflammation and rapidly resolves pain to give a patient comfort. It alleges to reduce pain by 50% within 30 minutes of initial application and with continued improvement to over 75% pain reduction within 24 hours.
On exploring the manufacturer’s official website, we could not find the list of ingredients used in its formulation. On exploring further, we found the following ingredients in the formula:
- Calendula officinalis
- Centella asiatica 3x
- Echinacea purpurea 1x
- Sambucus nigra
Inactive ingredients include hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, polyethylene oxide, carbomer, methyl paraben, polyvinyl alcohol, modified food starch, and titanium dioxide.
For adults and children above 12, you are supposed to place the gel patch on a clean finger with the beige side facing up. Place the beige side of the gel patch on the affected area and hold for 5 seconds. The gel patch immediately adheres to the sore and dissolves in less than 2 hours. Repeat the process for up to four times a day or as directed by your healthcare provider. Children below 12 years should contact a doctor first before using this product.
The manufacturer has not indicated the recommended retail of Soothe and Cure. It also appears that it is not sold directly from their official website. We checked on Amazon and didn’t find this product, perhaps because it is relatively new in the market.
