Advantages: Easy application, with practice
Disadvantages: Protects but doesn't necessarily sooth
I tried this problem due to problems I'd had with its main rival - Bonjela. I have found it difficult to get Bonjela off my finger and to stay on the ulcer - I usually end up swallowing most of it or with it still left on my index finger.
Iglu, when applied to the ulcer, is supposed to form a seal around the area to protect it and sooth the problem. It seems to start solidifying when it makes contact with liquid e.g. saliva.
The product does as it promises however I feel a little practice is required with the application. Use dry hands to apply it or it will start to solidify before you've had time to apply to the affected area. Wipe as quickly onto the ulcer and there isn't much room for error. However, compared to Bonjela, this is a breeze.
I applied this to the tip of my tongue recently and it did help with the pain caused by the ulcer, however the seal isn't the sort of thing you can apply and forget about. I was constantly aware of it. A pleasing alternative to other products but I find Corsodyl or other medicated mouthwashes are better at treating the ulcer.
Summary: An interesting alternative to bonjela and far superior
