How does it work? This spray contains two active ingredients, tetracaine hydrochloride previously known as amethocaine hydrochloride in the UK and chlorhexidine digluconate. Chlorhexidine digluconate is an antiseptic and disinfectant agent, which is active against various bacteria, viruses, bacterial spores and fungi. It kills the micro-organisms associated with mouth and throat infections. Tetracaine hydrochloride belongs to a group of medicines known as local anaesthetics. It works by temporarily blocking the pathway of pain signals along nerves. Pain is caused by the stimulation of pain receptors at the ends of nerves. The stimulation causes sodium to enter the nerve ending, which causes an electrical signal to build up in the nerve. When this electrical signal is big enough, it passes along the nerve to the brain, where the signal is interpreted as pain. Tetracaine works by stopping the sodium entering the nerve ending at the site of the pain. This prevents an electrical signal building up and passing along the nerve fibres to the brain. In this way tetracaine causes numbness and relieves pain at the area it is applied to. The combination of these medicines is used to treat infections and inflammation of the mouth and throat and the pain and discomfort associated with these conditions. What is it used for? Inflammation of the gums or lining of the mouth Mouth ulcers Relief from the symptoms of mouth and throat infections, eg sore throat Relief of pain and discomfort in more serious throat infections, such as tonsillitis and pharyngitis
