Brufen Cream is a topical medication that contains ibuprofen, a common NSAID. It is typically used for the temporary relief of minor aches and pains of the muscles and joints associated with conditions such as arthritis, sprains, strains, and backaches. The active ingredient, ibuprofen, works by reducing inflammation, pain, and swelling in the affected area when applied topically.

The primary cause of using Brufen Cream is to alleviate pain and inflammation in localized areas of the body. It does this by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, which are chemicals in the body that promote inflammation, pain, and fever.

  • Always read and follow the product label instructions.
  • Do not apply more cream than recommended or on a larger area than advised.
  • Avoid contact with the eyes, mouth, or mucous membranes. In case of accidental contact, rinse with water immediately.
  • Discontinue use if skin irritation or allergic reactions occur and seek medical attention if necessary.
  • Store the product in a cool, dry place, and keep it out of reach of children.
  • If you have a history of allergies, gastrointestinal issues, or are taking other medications, consult a healthcare provider before using Brufen Cream.

  • Some individuals may experience skin redness, itching, or a mild burning sensation at the application site.
  • In rare cases, individuals may develop an allergic reaction to ibuprofen, which can manifest as skin rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, or difficulty breathing. Seek immediate medical attention if this occurs.
  • Although topical application reduces the risk, some amounts of ibuprofen can still be absorbed into the bloodstream and potentially cause gastrointestinal irritation.
  • Individuals with a known hypersensitivity to NSAIDs or a history of allergic reactions should exercise caution.
  •  Although limited, there is a possibility of systemic absorption, which could lead to the same systemic side effects as oral ibuprofen, such as stomach ulcers, bleeding, and liver or kidney problems.
