- Use the No Mess Applicator to apply a small amount of gel to the area where you are experiencing pain (amount ranging in size from a 1 penny to a 2 pence piece).

- For targeted local relief for pain and swelling (inflammation) in muscles, back and neck, as well as sprains, strains and bruises.
- Why Choose It?

- The Emulgel technology helps the gel to penetrate deeply into the skin to enhance delivery of diclofenac to the point of pain. Effective for targeted local relief for pain and swelling (inflammation) in muscles, back and neck, as well as sprains, strains and bruises.
- Voltarol topical pain relief gel is non-greasy, with no strong odour.
