Reliviate Gel is a gel containing the active ingredient piroxicam. Piroxicam belongs to a group of medicines called topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (often shortened to NSAIDs) which are applied to the skin to reduce inflammation (swelling) and pain.
Piroxicam works by blocking the production of chemicals (prostaglandins) which the body produces in response to injury or certain diseases. These prostaglandins would otherwise go on to cause swelling and pain.
