Corsodyl/gingivitis mouthwash

Hi all,

I'm wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a mouthwash for sore/bleeding gums (currently using Listerine). In the UK, I would normally buy Corsodyl, but couldn't find it in Coop etc.

Heading to the apotheke today, but if anyone has a brand name I should look for that would be great.

Thanks!

Dee

Use soda bicarbonate (alone or over your toothpaste), your situation will improve in no time.

In France you can find special preparations of soda bicarbonate for oral usage which are much finer than usual bicarbonate (pharmacies or Carrefour), don't know if it exist here.

I would also get it checked out by a dentist. Bleeding gums is never a good sign.

That too (also a dental hygienist), plus it could be a sign for other underlying health issues - diabetes for instance.

OP, look for the detailed composition, I think you can find it in Muller under a different brand.

Yes, googled a bit and the active substance is Chlorhexidin, I'm sure I saw tooth paste and mouthwash based on it.

Re: Corsodyl/gingivitis mouthwash

Describe the issue at the chemist, they all seem to speak perfect English
Or just ask for the brand name "Curasept"

Re: Corsodyl/gingivitis mouthwash

Indeed, for anyone else who needs it in future, the brand name is Curasept and it is widely available in pharmacies. You can only use it for 7-14 days. It doesn't taste very strong, and there is no alcohol in it.
