Commonly, in presence of an epithelial damage, the body activates an “alert system” represented by symptomatic pain. The painful sensation is due to the activation of a signal that is transferred to the brain through nervous axes.
Drugs used to mitigate the painful sensation are called analgesics. These drugs do not act on causes of pain but on its nervous transmission, blocking the connection between the epithelium and the brain.
For treatment of moderate severity, Zambon has developed the combination of ibuprofen and arginine, which interacts with ibuprofen in the process of absorption facilitating it.
