Hello. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Before answering your question, we would like to ask what is your goal of applying Voltaren Emulgel to your baby's skin? Voltaren Emulgel contains 1% diclofenac sodium (1 gram Voltaren Emulgel contains 11.6 mg of the active substance diethylamine diclofenac which is equivalent to 10 mg diclofenac sodium). Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that can treat pain and inflammation in joints and muscles, inflammation due to trauma such as sprains, sprains or bruises in joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments and to treat rheumatism. Voltaren gel is an external medicine that is only used on the surface of the skin of the affected area and is only given to adults.
The following are contraindications to the use of voltaren gel:
Giving to children is not recommended (especially infants)
Pregnant and breastfeeding women are also not recommended
Patients with a history of asthma
Hypersensitivity to diclofenac
Some of the side effects of voltaren gel that can occur, especially if it is used on large areas of skin and for a long time, include:
Local / local skin irritation
Indigestion, nausea, diarrhea
High blood pressure
The side effects above do not always happen to everyone. For complete information you can read on the package sheet or ask the pharmacy where you got it. May be useful. Greetings, Dr. Shirly
