Tylenol gets 'precise'

NEW YORK McNeil Consumer Healthcare recently parlayed its Tylenol brand franchise into external analgesics.

Labeled Tylenol Precise, McNeil introduced two SKUs into the external analgesic space — a patch and a cream. The air-activated heat therapy will go up against Pfizer Consumer’s Thermacare, which is experiencing a resurgence in sales under its relatively new stewardship (Wyeth Consumer, now part of Pfizer, had purchased the rights to Thermacare from Procter & Gamble two years ago). 

Both the Tylenol Precise cream and Tylenol Precise patch retail for around $7.99.
