Benzydamine mouthwash

BMJ Group Medical Reference

Benzydamine is a painkiller that you can take in a mouthwash. The brand name for this mouthwash is Difflam Oral Rinse or Difflam Sore Throat Rinse. You can buy it from a pharmacy. We don't know whether using this mouthwash works for burning mouth syndrome. There haven't been any good-quality studies that have shown it works. [17]

You may find the mouthwash stings your mouth. If this happens, you can dilute it half and half with water. [18]
