Pyosan Gum Paint for Inflamed Sore Gums
Pyosan gum paint is a topical solution that combines antiseptic agents with tanning agents. It is locally applied to the gums to treat severe bacterial infections and inflammatory conditions.
The paint contains potassium iodide and iodine, which act as antiseptics and anti-infectives, effectively killing bacteria. Tannic acid functions as an astringent, causing the soft tissues to contract and preventing bleeding, resulting in firmer gums. Menthol acts as a local analgesic, providing pain relief, while also creating a cooling sensation that offers some respite from discomfort. Additionally, camphor acts as a mild analgesic, alleviating pain. Thymol possesses antiseptic and antibacterial properties, effectively reducing oral infections.
This gum paint is specifically indicated for the treatment of painful gum disorders, inflamed and bleeding gums, teething pain and irritation, as well as stomatitis, which refers to the inflammation of the mucous lining of the mouth.
