How Acedol Gel works

Acedol Gel is a combination of four medicines: Diclofenac, Linseed Oil, Menthol and Methyl Salicylate. Diclofenac and Methyl Salicylate are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) which work by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling). Linseed Oil is a plant-based oil which further reduces inflammation and improves blood circulation at the site of application.It also increases the penetration of Diclofenac through the skin. Menthol produces a cooling effect on the skin.
