The first time I used it it did burn but gave GREAT pain relief almost immediately. Then the pharmacist told me if it burned I was using it wrong.

It was easy to use but once I sprayed it I regretted it instantly. I told my husband it felt like I snorted drain cleaner. The pain was horrible. I will not be using this again.
