- for Mouth Ulcers Pyralvex solution contains two active ingredients, salicyclic acid and rhubarb extract. Salicylic acid is a type of medicine called a salicylate. It is similar to, but not the same as aspirin. Salicylic acid works by blocking the action of a substance in the body called cyclo-oxygenase. Cyclo-oxygenase is involved in the production of various chemicals in the body, including some known as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins have many actions, and are involved in causing inflammation. The body produces prostaglandins in response to injury and they cause an increase in the blood supply to the area of damage. This results in swelling, heat, redness and pain in that area. By blocking cyclo-oxygenase, salicylic acid prevents the formation of prostaglandins and hence reduces inflammation and pain in the area of the mouth it is applied to. Rhubarb extract contains anthraquinone glycosides, which also relieve inflammation. Pyralvex solution is used to relieve the pain and discomfort caused by mouth ulcers and denture irritation. The solution also has some antimicrobial properties that help prevent the irritated areas from getting infected. The solution should be applied to the sore area of the mouth three to four times daily using the brush provided. Avoid rinsing the mouth or eating for 15 minutes after application. For denture irritation, leave 30 minutes after applying the solution before putting the dentures back in. Don't apply the solution directly to the dentures, as this can further irritate the gums. What is it used for? Relieving pain from: Mouth ulcers. Denture irritation.
