What is Ibuprofen 5% Gel?

Ibuprofen 5% gel is a topically applied anti-inflammatory medication used to relieve pain and swelling. It works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to the brain and is available over-the-counter in many countries for purchase with or without a prescription.

How Does Ibuprofen Gel Work?

Ibuprofen 5% gel is a topical medication used to relieve pain and inflammation. The active ingredient in the gel is ibuprofen, which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, which are compounds that play a role in pain and inflammation. The gel form of ibuprofen is applied directly to the affected for greater absorption through the skin and into the underlying tissues, where it can provide relief from pain and inflammation.
