I applied to shoulder and it began to BURN terribly, I washed it and it seemed to help. Then I went to apply face cream not knowing there was a trace of the Capzasin HP still on my hand and I have BLISTERS and Burns on my face!~!~! I can not believe the amount of pain I am in and I am so worried that the blisters will grow and even scar. I would NEVER recommend a medication that is so DANGEROUS!
