Used metrogyl gel 2% for gum swelling
The chemist mistakely gave metrogyl gel 2% instead of metrogly dg gel for using on gum inflammation.. And i used it.. But felt a different taste and so rinsed off and brushed again.. I rinsed several times.. Is it ok to have used it.. I rinsed a lot of times, but since I massaged my gums for few seconds with it, will it cause any side effect..

Hi, There is nothing to worry. It was good that you rinsed your mouth thoroughly. Buy Metrogyl DG forte for oral use and apply as prescribed. Incase you see some reaction over the gums visit the dentist immediately.

Hello. Usually metrogyl gel 2% is for skin and not for oral purpose. Nothing will happen if you have rinsed and brushed, and no signs.
Next Steps
In case of burning, swelling, irritation, pain or  any other symptoms kindly visit nearby dental surgeon for physical examination and evaluation
