Diclofenac Sodium Gel Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Agents (NSAID), Topical
Solaraze is part of the NSAIDs class and treats Actinic Keratosis. NSAIDs are used to treat fever, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, menstrual pain, migraine, eye inflammation, allergic conjunctivitis, and other types of pain and inflammation.
They work by reducing associate catalyst within the body that causes inflammation and will increase the sensation of pain.
Solaraze is offered in each complete and generic forms
Solaraze gel contains the active ingredient NSAID, which is a type of medicine called a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).
The gel is used to treat a skin condition called actinic keratosis.
Actinic keratoses area unit rough areas of skin caused by sun harm over a few years, eg from sunbathing or using sunbeds, or working outdoors.
They occur in fair-skinned individuals, whose skin is particularly sensitive to the damaging effect of UV rays.
The skin lesions are usually harmless, however about two percent will turn into a skin cancer (squamous cell carcinoma). Some small actinic keratoses may disappear on their own.
However, the prospect of associate keratosis turning into a carcinoma falls if the keratosis is treated early.
Is not fully understood how diclofenac works in treating actinic keratoses. Diclofenac’s action in the body involves inhibiting a substance called cyclo-oxygenase. This is normally involved in the production of various chemicals in the body, some of which are known as prostaglandins. By inhibiting the action of cyclo-oxygenase diclofenac reduces the production of prostaglandins.
It is thought that Solaraze gel may go by reducing the assembly of a specific variety of autacoid referred to as PGE2.
