For me, this is a very effective adjunct treatment for pain associated with degenerative arthritis in my lumbar spine and hips. It is very important to follow the package directions and apply a very THIN layer to decrease burning sensation. There are also lower strength formulations available.

This has been brilliant for my post herpetic shingles) neuralgia, when nothing else had worked. There is a bit of a knack. APPLY THINLY AS PER DIRECTIONS several times a day. You have to do this for a while , possibly a month, see directions. I noted it down to keep on track. AFTER THAT my pain reduced dramatically. Its really worth reading the directions carefully. Also the burning reduces as you do this over and over, just apply thinly, dont rub in much, wash hands.

For me, this is a very effective adjunct treatment for pain associated with degenerative arthritis in my lumbar spine and hips. It is very important to follow the package directions and apply a very THIN layer to decrease burning sensation. There are also lower strength formulations available. When used as directed, I find my chronic pain is decreased and I am able to move more freely. With regular application as directed, the burning sensation decreases,which can initially be very intense if over applied, decreases and the benefits increase. I also like that there is no odor and it isn't greasy or sticky feeling. Be aware that additional heat sources, like hot car seats, heavy blankets or clothing, or very hot showers will "reactivate" the burning sensation and it can become very uncomfortable. All in all, I highly recommend this medication for those who experience chronic pain associated with arthritis.

I applied about 11:00 pm. By 2:00 am my legs and feet were on fire. It was borderline unbearable. I tried washing it off, applying alhoe, nothing worked. I wrapped my legs with wet hand towels packed with icepacks. It took 7-8 hours for the burning to stop. NEVER AGAIN!!!
