When obtaining the Pyralvex oromucosal solution read all of the insert leaflet before you start using the medicine.

Remember to keep the leaflet as you may want to refer to it again. If you have further questions upon reading the leaflet, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

How does Pyralvex work? 


Pyralvex solution contains two active ingredients namely salicylic acid and rhubarb extract.

Salicylic acid is a type of medicine called salicylate. It 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 stops the formation of prostaglandins and therefore reduces inflammation and pain in the area of the mouth it is applied to.

How to use Pyralvex Solution correctly? 

Always use Pyralvex exactly as your doctor had instructed you. 


Pyralvex should be applied liberally to the ulcer or irritated denture area 3 to 4 times a day using the provided brush.

  • Don’t apply pyralvex solution directly to the dentures, as this can further irritate the gums.
  • In adults and the elderly Pyralvex should be applied liberally to the ulcer or irritated denture area (after dentures have been removed) 3 to 4 times a day using the provided brush.
  • For denture irritation, leave 30 minutes after applying the solution before putting the dentures back in.
  • Avoid rinsing the mouth or eating for 15 minutes after use of pyralvex.
  • Don’t apply pyralvex solution directly to the dentures, as this can further irritate the gums. 
  • Do not use it for more than 7 days 
  • Do not exceed the stated frequency of application as excess Pyralvex may be harmful.
