After I applied the roll-on (top of feet. ankles, knees and toes), the areas felt warm. Then a few hours later, the fire started! Burning pain, redness, unable to wash it off and this was 36 hours ago and i STILL feel it on my left foot!! I will NEVER use this again!!!!!

I'm not a whip at all. I used it 1 time & never again! The EXTREME BURNING is almost unbearable & after 12 hours its worse than the 1st hour! NOTHING will remove it from my legs and hands. I agree 100% with other viewers that this product is dangerous and should be either by prescription or OFF the market! I shudder to think of a child using this!!

I have spent my life keeping covered to prevent sunburn, then I applied the prescription form of Capsaicin, 0.075% Trixaicin and thought my shoulder was going to burn off! My arm is red and burning as I write this. I now have two tubes of the ointment from hell that is going to rot. Never again! As others have said, there should be warnings all over this product!

I have terrible knee arthritis and torn cartilage. I used the roll-on and it alleviated my pain better than anything else I have tried, including sleeves, rubs, naproxen, Tylenol, glucosamine. This stuff is awesome!
