This medication did not work for me. I applied as instructed to a soar knee. The burning to my skin was horrible. It blistered by skin. I had to jump into a cold shower and wash my knee for several minutes to relieve the burning. The burning continued about 20 minutes after I finished the cold shower. I thought I was going to have to go to the emergency room, but it finally subsided.

The outside skin is perfectly fine, it's t ... Show Full Comment
