Find here answers to the most Frequently Asked Questions about Gelclair®.


Gelclair® is a concentrated oral gel classified as a Type IIa medical device.

Gelclair® helps to relieve the pain associated with oral mucositis and other oral lesions including those caused by:

  • medication,
  • disease
  • radiotherapy or chemotherapy
  • oral surgery
  • traumatic ulcers caused by dental braces, dentures and ageing.

Gelclair® forms a protective coating inside the mouth, which quickly and effectively helps to manage the pain and can potentially improve the ability to eat and drink.

Gelclair® comes in 15ml sachets or as a bottle of 180ml. Pour the entire contents of the single dose sachet, or 15ml from the bottle into a glass and add approximately 40ml of water. Stir mixture well and use at once. Rinse around the mouth for at least one minute or as long as possible to coat the tongue, palate, throat, inside of  the mouth completely. Gargle and spit out.

In patients which are not able to rinse and gargle (e.g. young children) it is suggested to apply the product directly into the month by using a sponge or swab.

It is not recommended to dilute the product and store it for use. Each sachet should be used individually as required.
