Gel is a type of topical dosage form that is used to treat various skin conditions. It is a semi-solid, translucent substance that is applied to the skin and absorbed into the underlying tissue. Gels are commonly used for a variety of conditions, including skin hydration, acne, and pain relief. They can also be used to deliver medications such as topical antibiotics and anti-inflammatory agents. Gel formulations are attractive due to their ease of application and quick absorption. However, it is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions for use and to avoid getting the gel in the eyes or mouth. Some gels may also cause skin irritation or other side effects, so it is important to monitor for any adverse reactions and to discontinue use if necessary.
